Unknown miscreants attempted a robbery at the office of the District Information Officer, Churachandpur located at Tuibong, late Tuesday by breaking down the office door, sources said.
However, no item was stolen, and the chairs, tables and files were left intact, the sources said.
DIO Mangminthang Gangte has filed an FIR with regards to the incident at the Churachandpur Police Station and the police are investigating the case, police said.
The DIO said the staff were in the office till 4 pm on Tuesday and the incident could have happened between 6 pm to 4:00 am of Wednesday.
He said that there were no known items missing which could be due to the fact that the targeted room, the computer room cum store room, was missed by the alleged robbers.
The fencing of the DIO office, which was in a pitiable state and had never been fenced, was constructed at the end of last year but the contractor failed to build the gate of the office which made the office vulnerable for bobbers/drug addicts that was compounded by the absence of a CCTV in the office complex.
