Burglars make girls hostage inside a house in Srinagar

SRINAGAR — Two ‘burglars’ barged into a house in Moominabad area of Batamaloo Srinagar on Friday and made a couple of family members hostage for quite some time.

A girl, while narrating the incident, said that unidentified persons entered their house when their aunt was sleeping and she along with her sister was present in the room. According to her, all the family members had gone to a nearby mosque to offer Friday prayers.

“Both the youth caught hold of us, tied us with a rope, and dragged us. They were demanding cash. I somehow managed to untie the rope and alarmed the locals. In the process, I sustained injuries in my hand and neck,” the girl said.
