Sub.: Amending the news about theft in Col t 4. Page – 8, of your daily on dt. ……………….


I respectfully invite your attention to the above referred news and request you to make a correction therein before republishing it.


According to your staff correspondent, the thieves came to our house at midnight and stole about five thousand rupees in cash and some golden Jewellery from the house. The thieves entered the house due to the wrong bolt at the door.

But actually, the thieves came to our house through the open window of the kitchen. They ran off with Rs. 70000/- (Seventy Thousand Rupees) in cash and some golden Jewellery from the cupboard. Further no money has been refunded to me while your report says that a sum of five thousand has been recovered by the police.

So, I hope that you would rectify the mistakes in the report such that the police investigation is matched properly with the report.

Yours faithfully,
