 This thief named Jayanti from Rajasthan came to Surat and worked as a house servant for the people of Jain community living in Umra area.  By doing housework for 15-20 days he was gaining the trust of the members of the household.  Whenever he had the opportunity, he would carry out the theft with the help of his friends.  He was fleeing Rajasthan by catching a train immediately after the theft.  Going to Rajasthan, he used to share the stolen money with his marines.
