After Nagole incident, armed thieves attempt to rob jewellery shop in Keesara
Within twelve hours of a dacoity in Mahadev Jewellers in Nagole, a similar attempt was made at R S Rathod Jewellery Shop in Nagaram
HYDERABAD: Within twelve hours of a dacoity in Mahadev Jewellers in Nagole, a similar attempt was made at R S Rathod Jewellery Shop in Nagaram on the outskirts of Hyderabad on Friday. A six-member gang, brandishing pistols, barged into the shop and fired two rounds in the air in a bid to rob gold ornaments.
Even as the thieves threatened the owner to part with the jewellery, other staff members became alert due to the firing sounds. Realising that they could be in trouble, the desperadoes quickly fled the shop without taking any jewellery or property from there.
According to eye-witnesses, at least six members entered the shop and created ruckus. The local police collected evidence and began examining the footage from the nearby CCTV cameras to track down the culprits. The miscreants reportedly fled the scene on two-wheelers.
Everyone heaved a sigh of relief, realising that no one was harmed and no property was robbed in the incident. The police were also trying to ascertain if the robbery attempt was made by the same gang that struck at Mahadev Jewellers in Nagole on Thursday night. Two persons, including a gold trader, were grievously injured when the miscreants fired a few rounds on them from pistols before decamping with a huge quantity of gold and jewellery in the Nagole incident.
Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat on Friday morning visited the two victims, who were being treated at Supraja Hospital in Nagole and found out more details from them about the incident. Surgeries were performed on the two injured persons who were reported to be out of danger
