The city police claimed to have solved the sensational robbery case that occurred on August 24 in Vidyaranyapuram by arresting six persons from different parts of the country.

"Eight persons are involved in the robbery. Two of them, one from Mysuru and another from Bengaluru plotted the robbery, while the remaining executed. The duo have criminal history and own jewellery shops," DG&IGP Praveen Sood told reporters.

"The six persons were arrested from West Bengal, Mumbai, Rajasthan, Jammu and Kashmir," he added.

Sood congratulated city police commissioner Chandragupta and the teams that cracked the case and announced Rs 5 lakh cash reward for the teams.
