Rs 3.4 crore heist at bullion traders busted

Rs 3.4 crore heist at bullion traders busted

The suspects - Rambahadur, Bahutaj Sashi, Padam Thappa, Tek Bahadur, Om Jora, Nayaram Naresh and Thapendra Bahadur - have been arrested from Karnataka, Uttaranchal, Delhi and Mumbai. A sum of Rs 2.11 crore has been recovered from the arrested.

However, the City Police are yet to obtain the custody of the prime accused  Dhansingh, a watchman at the firm and his associate Sanjay Bhandari - from Nepal Police. Three more accomplices Jai Bahadur, Ganesh and Basanth Kadka are still absconding. 

Police have identified Dhansingh, an employee at the firm for the last five years as the mastermind behind the heist. He connived with other Nepalese watchmen in different parts of the country and used the duplicate key to enter the safe room. After the crime, all the accomplices dispersed across the country along with their share of the booty, police said.

Police Commissioner Shankar Bidari said rigorous background checks should be carried out while recruiting Nepali nationals for jobs.

He said they were involved in  five to six heinous crimes in the City. He said Nepali nationals flee to their country after committing crime to evade arrest and Indian police should be given a free hand to investigate in Nepal. “We will appeal to the Union Home Ministry through the State Government to take necessary steps in this behalf,” he said.
