Man robs ex-employer’s house for sister’s wedding
A 22-year-old youth has been arrested for robbing his ex-employer’s house. Police say Veeraswami Piramal Nadar, a resident of Dharavi, robbed the house of Papade Nadar, a resident of Transit Camp in Dharavi because he needed money for his sister’s wedding.
According to police, Veeraswami worked at Papade’s printing press at Matunga for one and a half years. He was fired in 2009 because of an error.
“Papade had told Veeraswami that be would be out of town on October 21. That’s when Veeraswami decided to strike,” said Hemant Patil, senior inspector of police, Dharavi Police Station.

“During the time that he worked for Papade, Veeraswami had visited the former’s house several times and knew its layout. At that time, Papade was not married.
After leaving the job, Veeraswami often called Papade at his home and would speak to him. On these occasions he happened to talk to Papade’s wife Kannam,” Patil added.
Police further said that when Veeraswami struck at the Nadar home on October 21, only Kannam, who is pregnant, was at home. He threatened her with a knife and made away with valuables worth Rs 1,25,600. However, before leaving, he threatened her in a Tamil dialect.
Police say that though Kannam felt she had heard the voice before, she couldn’t identify it.
Based on her descripttion, police then made a sketch of the accused and Papade realised that the robber resembled Veeraswami.
Patil said, “We then went to Veeraswami’s home and were told by his neighbour that he had gone to Mathura via a train on October 22. He would have reached there on October 23. We immediately informed the Mathura Police who nabbed Veeraswami as soon he got off the train.”
The accused was brought to Mumbai on Friday and was booked for robbery under section 393 of the IPC.
