Ambalappuzha circle inspector Biju V Nair said Madhu Kumar of Karumady went out with his family to Karuvatta in the evening to attend a wedding of his elder brother’s son.

“They went without locking the house gate. When they returned at10.30pm they found that the house has been broken into. The back door was opened. The next day Kumar approached the police and lodged a complaint. On a hunch, he revealed to the policemen the name of a man whom he suspected to be behind the robbery,” the police officer was quoted as saying by Times Of India.

The police began an investigation with an attempt to find the suspected person. But on Thursday morning, they found the missing gold in front of the house gate wrapped in a paper with a note scripted on it. The note said, “Please forgive me. I took your ornaments as I was in desperate need of money. I will not repeat it. Please don’t approach the police against me.”

Seeing this, Kumar informed the police that he is not interested to go ahead with the case.
