Broad daylight robbery in Udaipur; 24 kg gold, Rs 11 lakh cash looted

Udaipur, August 29, 2022

Five armed men on Monday barged into the Manappuram Gold Loan office in Rajasthan's Udaipur and took away 24 kg gold and Rs 11 lakh cash, the police said.

The incident took place in broad daylight in the Sundarwas area. The miscreants, wearing masks, entered the branch at 9.20 a.m. and left at 9.43 a.m.

The company had placed a GPS tracker in the box in which the gold ornaments were kept. Surprisingly, the robbers took out the tracker and threw it out in the open so that they could not be traced.

It is being said that at least 1,100 people had deposited in this branch of the company.

Additional Superintendent of Police Chandrasheel Thakur said that five youth had come on motorcycles and entered the Manappuram on Sundarvas Main Road.

They looted the gold ornaments by wielding a gun and then fled.

A police team immediately reached the spot and started the investigation.

The police said that key points on roads had been blocked to ensure the accused are nabbed at the earliest, and CCTV footages are being scanned.

An intensive search has been launched to nab the accused.

Police have also questioned the staff and further probe is underway.
