CCTV footage of miscreants
The city police are still trying to scrutinize the CCTV camera footage of these miscreants.
An official has said that the robbers are also likely to be laborers from other states like Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. Who were also trying to get their hands on valuables for some pretty quick cash.
In another unrelated incident, earlier this week, a truck driver was stabbed to death by a gang of dacoits on the service road just near Wadhmana. And the victim, a native of another state, had earned the wrath of the dacoits as they were even trying to chase them.
Apart from the police of Gittikhadan, the Crime Branch has also started an investigation into the matter. According to a source, some of the criminals had already been taken into custody for questioning. But till now the police have not got any clue of any kind.
