He added, "I approached the society office and inspected the CCTV footage. I later understood that these four people were robbers and since they didn't get to steal anything else, they took my sandals. All of us residents approached the police to file an attempt to robbery case, but the police didn't take cognisance. This might have been their [thieves'] first attempt to rob our society, which failed, but the next time they might come well prepared. The police finally registered our complaint after we regularly followed up with them for two days."
