November 19, 2004 19:13 IST

Some computer accessories are reported to have been stolen from Vice-president Bhairon Singh Shekhawat's residence in New Delhi.

Computer disc writers and some other accessories have reportedly gone missing from the office of the vice-president's personal secretary at the former's Maulana Azad Road residence, police sources said on Friday.

The theft was detected on Wednesday after which a First Information Report was lodged, they said.

"Although the worth of the stolen property is only about Rs 50,000, the theft at the vice-president's residence, which is a heavily fortified complex, is a serious matter," they said.

Police believe that due to the security arrangements at the complex, no outsider could have stolen the items.A list of all those working and staying at the address has been prepared and police have started questioning them to identify the culprit, the sources said.
