The incident took place last evening and the complaint was filed today, they said.

The Indian medium pacer had left the 250 gram gold chain on the chair at the VCA dressing room before heading to the ground to play for Uttar Pradesh against Rajasthan in the Vijay Hazare One-Day cricket tournament.

"After the match, Kumar went straight to the hotel but later realised that he had forgotten to collect the gold chain from the dressing room. He immediately informed the VCA officials about it. However, a search by them proved futile," police said.

Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) President Prakash Dixit confirmed the incident and said the police investigation is in progress.
