“At the time of the alleged theft, our officials were compiling the attendance. There were two CPUs in the office of the section officer. It appears they took the wrong one. We have a back up anyway. We have not lost the data,” she said.

The incident came to light on December 3, a day after the law faculty started checking the attendance of students. Out of over 7,000 students, the attendance of around 200 students were reportedly below the minimum required attendance mark.

Police has checked the CCTV footage but could not find any concrete evidence. Police is suspecting the role of an insider.

“No other item was stolen from the officer’s room. A LCD screen is the most common item usually stolen, but these thieves did not even touch it. The lockers were also left untouched. We are probing the case,” an investigating officer told Hindustan Times.
