He had returned to his native recently and had taken to robbery for making quick money. According to police, Jainuddin monitored the houses, where the residents used to keep the key under a flower pot, before leaving and robbed one of them.

Pawn shops

The burglars had pledged some of the articles with private pawn brokers and a probe is on in this regard.
