Senior Telangana BJP leader and Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya's mobile phone was stolen from his own house.
The theft was detected on Sunday afternoon.
The minister had reportedly plugged in the cell phone, a Samsung J7, to charge it in the visitors' section of his home and stepped out. He'd kept the cell phone in silent mode. A visitor most likely made off with it.
A complaint has been registered on behalf of the minister, and the Hyderabad Police has initiated an investigation in the case.
