A burglary at a high school in Nabarangpur district of Odisha has sent the police into a tizzy. 

The robbery that occurred at Indravati High School, Khatiguda on Friday night came to light after the school authorities lodged a complaint with the police. 

As per sources, the peon of the school found the main gate broken on Saturday morning and informed the headmaster. 

Later, they found a computer, a printer cum Xerox machine and other valuable office stationery missing.

It is suspected that the robbers gained entry into the office room by breaking two locks. But what is interesting that before leaving, the looters threw an open challenge to the police. 

“Its me Dhoom 4. Coming soon,” read a caption suspected to have been written on the blackboard by the robbers. 
The gang wrote that they would strike again and dared the school administration and police to catch them if they can. 

They also wrote down several phone numbers on the blackboard, apparently giving clues to the police to reach out to them or to mislead.

Interestingly, one of the phone numbers written on the blackboard belongs to a teacher of the school. 

However, the concerned teacher expressed ignorance as to why the robbers wrote his number on the blackboard. 
Meanwhile, the police have launched a probe into the case on the basis of the complaint filed by the school authorities.

The police team visited the school along with a scientific squad and a sniffer dog to gather clues about the gang. 

Sarbeswar Behera, the headmaster of the school said, “The peon of our school saw the gate vandalised on Saturday morning and informed me. We found the computer and Xerox machine were missing in the office room. On June 30, two of our teachers had retired and we had organised a farewell for them. Some musical instrument used in the function were also stolen by the miscreants.”

“The police are inquiring into the matter and we are hopeful they will be nabbed soon and we will get back our valuable items,” Behera added.
