Gang ties up family, flees with Rs 2.6L booty

A gang of seven armed men barged into a house at Seegehalli in KR Puram, east Bengaluru, early on Saturday, tied up the inhabitants and made off with Rs 2.6 lakh worth of valuables, police said.

Parthiban, an accountant with a telecom service provider, was woken up by commotion as the gang armed with rods, longs, machetes and knives broke through the front door. But before he could realise what had happened, the robbers beat him up and tied him up. The gang went on to overpower and tie up his wife Padmavathi, mother Valliyamma and daughter Pavithra.

The robbers hit the women with rods when they resisted their attempt to snatch the jewellery on their person. The gang collected the booty and sneaked out.

Parthiban managed to untie himself after sometime and raised an alarm. Neighbours rushed into the house and called the police. Senior police officers visited the house and carried out an inspection. In a complaint to the KR Puram police, Parthiban estimated the stolen valuables at Rs 2.6 lakh. He said the robbers were in the 20-30 age group and spoke English and Hindi.
Police are looking for CCTV camera footage to identify the suspects.
