Daily Times — which Marvi is a correspondent of — reported that two laptops, one smartphone, passports of family members and other travel documents were stolen.
Interestingly, her jewellery, apart from a gold ring and two bangles, was largely left untouched.
Marvi also told the Daily Times that “the miscreants had detached the new passports and took the valid ones while leaving the expired ones behind”.
The publication’s editor, Raza Rumi, posted pictures of the ransacked house on Twitter, highlighting the peculiarity of the ‘robbery’.
