Gang loots jewellery shop

The police said, around 10.45 am, the men walked in as customers into Mahaveer Jewellery Palace and requested owner Narendra Jain to show some gold jewellery. After selecting some, they got into an argument over the price and attacked the owner.

They beat him up, pushed him into the space behind a showcase and escaped with the jewellery. The shop’s loss is yet to be estimated. The incident came to light after Jain, profusely bleeding from his injuries came to his senses and alerted the neighbours. He is being treated at a private hospital.

Sources said the gang had done its homework, and known that the shop did not have a security guard for the last fortnight. Ten days ago, the men visited the shop and bought small silver items.

Interestingly, the gang has left a school bag which has a Davangere contact address.
