Koraput, Jan 27: Police have seized another 400gm gold in connection with the theft of around 1.6 kg of mortgaged gold ornaments from the State Bank of India’s Laxmipur branch in Koraput district.

Police have also arrested a goldsmith in this connection. Police said that they have recovered all the gold ornaments stolen from the bank.

Police had earlier arrested a former staff identified as Sekhar Kuldipiya for the crime. He was working as a messenger of SBI Laxmipur between 2014 and August 2020. Sekhar was earlier removed from the service over misconduct.

He had stolen the gold ornaments from bank’s locker in November 2021. However, a formal complaint was registered in January this year.
