Raju a worker of the shop opened the door of the shop in the morning. Little did he know that he was stealthily followed by two youth into the shop. The miscreants threatened Raju at gun point before tying his hand and legs.

Frightened Raju handed over the keys to the intruders. They sweeped the valuables in the showcase estimated to cost about Rs 30 lakh. Before decamping, they pushed Raju into a room and gagged him.
