The robbery had taken place in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh last week. The shop owners had assumed the men as customers and had even offered sanitisers. The robbers sanitised their hands and then pointed country-made guns at the store workers and escaped with the jewellery.
All the three accused hail from Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh district. “Initial investigation revealed that the trio was behind the daylight robbery in the jewellery shop in Aligarh on September 11,” said a senior police official.
Following the encounter, the police officials have recovered stolen items worth Rs.35 lakhs and their two-wheelers. The police are looking into the criminal history of all the three accused.
