Koraput, Jan 16: The police have arrested a former staff for his alleged involvement in the theft of around 1.6 kg of mortgaged gold ornaments from the State Bank of India’s Laxmipur branch in Koraput district.

The accused has been identified as Sekhar Kuldipiya. 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.

Sources said police zeroed in on Sekhar based on credible evidence received from the CCTV camera.
