Thereafter, in the month of October 2020, both came to her house to see the local beads and later, agreed to purchase the beads costing around Rs. 17 lakhs. It was stated that after few days, both had telephonically contacted her and told that they wanted to come to her house to buy the local beads but, at that time, Mrs Roshni was busy attending her sister at RKM Hospital and hence, she told the duo to come some other time. After knowing the fact that she was not at home, Tenzing Tsering and Miss T. Pordung trespassed into her residence and stole the local beads from her residence. After commission of offence, both had switched off their mobile phones and ran away.
