A woman in UP recently stole a gold necklace worth Rs 10 lakhs at a busy jewellery store, with her actions being recorded on CCTV. The elderly accused woman was seen dressed in a saree, wearing dark sunglasses, and craftly performing a sleight of hand which ended up in her being able to steal jewellery that has still not been recovered. The incident was reported from Gorakhpur, UP, and occurred earlier on November 17.
In the shocking CCTV footage, the unidentified woman can be seen casually browsing the gold jewellery. Before anyone could notice, the woman does a slight of hand and hides an entire jewellery box inside the pleats of her saree. Instead of fleeing from the scene of crime, the woman continues to browse more jewellery as store employees stood unfazed at what transpired before their very own eyes.
The woman then leaves the shop, pretending she didn’t find something to her liking. A case was registered against the woman and an investigation is on to nab her.
In other news reported from Bihar, a gang of thieves ended up committing two major acts of robbery earlier last week. In one incident, a gang of thieves stole an entire mobile tower by posing as the employees of the company which owned the tower. In another incident, a gang of thieves stole a railway engine kept in the railway yard.

First she put a box on top of an other one, then she moved both in her lap, there she push bottom one towards her tummy under saaree and bring her self forward and put the top box on the glass, Easy peasy
