A group of unknown people broke into the Elections Commission’s office late Sunday and stole an undisclosed sum of cash.

Speaking to Mihaaru, the EC said that the office door was broken down and that the money was stolen from a safe kept in a certain room.

The EC did not publicise the amount of money stolen from the office.

Theft is common during the month of Ramadan. According to Maldives Police Service, burglaries occur most frequently after the dawn prayer and at the time of breaking fast.
