Jewellery salesman robbed of 2 kg gold

A jewellery salesman was robbed of 2.01 kg of gold and Rs 4.9 lakh in cash in Cubbonpet, Central Bengaluru.

Santosh Kumar Khatri was attacked in his home by a four-member gang on Wednesday shortly after returning from a business trip to Mumbai and Hyderabad.

A woman posing as a salesperson approached him. When he tried to send her away, three of her accomplices attacked and dragged him.

They gagged him, tied his legs and hands and took away the bag containing the valuables. The gang locked the house from the outside before escaping.

Santosh managed to untie himself later and raised an alarm.

Neighbours rescued him and called Manish Kumar Khatri, the owner of the jewellery shop where Santosh worked.

The police have taken up a case of robbery, and suspect it to be an inside job.
