Press Trust of India  |  Panaji 

Police on Monday claimed to have cracked a week-old theft case in Panaji by arresting a 24-year-old man from Surat in Gujarat, an official said.

The minor accomplice of the accused, identified as Savant Sisodia, is on the run.

The theft was captured in a CCTV camera at a marriage ceremony in Panaji where a boy was seen lifting a bag containing gold worth Rs 30 lakh, the official said, adding they tracked down Sisodia through the location of his mobile phone.

A court in Surat granted Panaji Police Sisodia's transit remand for five days, he said.

The stolen gold is yet to be recovered.
