Mangaluru, August 23: The diamond rings that are said to have disappeared from the ears of the remains of a person held in the mortuary of a Bendorewell hospital in the city have since been found by Kadri police.
Harish Shetty (45), who worked as a mall security manager here, had breathed his last after suffering a heart attack on Thursday. His mortal remains were kept in the hospital morgue pending the arrival of some relatives. Even though the golden chain around her neck was removed, the diamond rings on her ears were not touched as it proved very difficult to remove them. Relatives had planned to remove the rings at the funeral and also informed morgue officials of the plan.
The next day, the security guard, when approached about the missing earrings, allegedly ignored the disappearance. Kadri police were subsequently informed. Police checked the CCTV footage and discovered that the guard had stolen the rings. We learn that he later returned the rings to members of Harish Shetty’s family.
The hospital director said the relevant security guard hired three months ago and the hospital management had no idea he would steal things like that. He said the guard had been removed from his post and the hospital would provide full cooperation to the police investigation.
