    Sad. Even the dead are being robbed. According to Priya Singh, cousin of dead man, nothing was stolen.
    Priya, you are wrong- the deceased’s DIGNITY was stolen when the tomb was broken into.
    Why can’t these grave robbers find a better, decent job to make a living ?
    Is it that people don’t employ LOWLIFES ?
