According to Kamat, he took a flight on December 9 from London to Mumbai via Jeddah carrying four big luggage bags. When he landed at Mumbai, he did not get his luggage. He approached a flight operator, who assured him to deliver his bags at home.

According to the police, Kamat received his bags in the next two to three days.

However, while checking the luggage, he found gold ornaments and other valuables worth 7,60,000 missing. He approached the flight operator to get his valuables.

Sub-inspector Bharat Mane said, “According to the complainant, luggage was not on board after the halt at Jeddah. Hence, there is a possibility of valuables being stolen at Jeddah. We will send a team to Mumbai airport for investigation.’’

On delay in registration a police complaint, Mane said, “Initially the victim approached respective airlines and visited Mumbai airport many times. He also crosschecked CCTV camera footages of loading and unloading of baggage at the airport but found nothing. Finally, he filed a complaint at Wakad police on Monday before heading to London.”

The Wakad police station filed a case under Section 379 (theft) of the Indian Penal Code on January 1.
