Rs 1.14 crore cash, 600 US dollars, gold and silver jewellery and six luxury watches purportedly stolen from Singh's home was recovered, police said.

The four accused, including the Nawada MP's bodyguard, domestic servant, apartment security guard and another accomplice, entered his flat yesterday when he was in Delhi, they said.

Singh, who is in Delhi for the Parliament session, was not immediately available for comments.

"It was a well planned theft. The arrested persons had inside knowledge about the valuables kept in the MP's flat. They broke the locks, collected everything in four suitcases and decamped with the booty. They had even hired an autorickshaw to take the stolen goods," Patna Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj said.

A special investigation team was set up track the culprits and all important roads of Patna were kept under surveillance, he said.

Police were today alerted about a person suspiciously moving with four suitcases from Gandhi Maidan area to Sultanganj, he said.

The accused, who was trying to flee to Hajipur, was nabbed by police and all valuables believed to have been stolen from the MP's flat were recovered from him, Maharaj said.

Police claimed that the total recovery comprising the valuables and the cash is around Rs 2 crore.
