The house of Nurulhidayah Ahmad Zahid in Country Heights, Kajang, has been burgled for the second time.
Nurulhidayah, 36, daughter of Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, together with her husband and two domestic helpers were at home when the robbers entered the house.
According to the Oriental Daily News , after receiving a report at 10am yesterday, police sent officers and men, including forensic team, to Nurulhidayah's house.
The report quoted Selangor CID chief Mohd Adnan Abdulah as confirming the case.
Adnan said Nurulhidayah’s family has lost about RM25,000 worth of personal belongings, including a laptop, five watches, a wedding ring and some jewellery.
CCTV not switched on
According to the report, Kajang deputy police chief Supt Abdul Ghani Mohamad Ji said at a press conference that the robbers were believed to have entered the house, located near the highway, through the rear door.
After ransacking the house on the ground floor, the robbers left without waking up the occupants who were still sleeping upstairs, Ghani said.
Nurulhidayah and husband lodged a report at the Kajang police station at 11am.
According to Ghani, although there is a closed-circuit television system installed in the house, it's not switched on when they are at home.
However, police have found two different pairs of footprints and some fingerprints at the scene, he added.
Police are investigating the case under Section 457 of Penal Code, on housebreaking.
Nurulhidayah's house was also burgled in April last year , where among the items reported stolen were two watches and RM1,000 in cash.
