By Rohit Kumar Singh: A mobile tower worth Rs 19 lakh was stolen by a group of people posing as officials of a mobile company in Bihar’s Patna. The tower of the Gujarat Tele Link Private Limited (GTPL) company was installed on the terrace of man named Lalan Singh’s house located in Yarpur Rajputana colony in the Gardanibagh area of Patna.

According to Lalan Singh, a group of people posing as officials of the mobile company came to him and said that the company was incurring huge losses, so they had planned to remove the mobile tower. Lalan Singh agreed without cross checking their identity.

Afterwards, 25 people worked round the clock for three days and cut the mobile tower into pieces using a gas cutter machine. Finally, they loaded the pieces into a truck and went away.

Sources told India Today that the stolen mobile tower was worth Rs 19 lakh and was installed on the land of Lalan Singh almost 15 years back.

After the incident came to light, the police registered an FIR on the matter and began an investigation.

Interestingly, mobile service provider GTPL was not aware about the theft until Saturday when officials of the company carried out inspection of all the mobile towers which were defunct and found that the mobile tower in Gardanibagh was missing.

This incident follows a similar incident that took place a few months back when a 60 feet long iron bridge weighing 500 tonnes was stolen in Sasaram district by people posing as officials of the water resources department.
