Rs.52 lakh looted from home of Ghaziabad businessmanJune 18th, 2010 - 8:13 pm ICT by IANS
Ghaziabad, June 18 (IANS) Six armed robbers broke into the home of a businessman Friday and looted cash and jewellery worth around Rs.52 lakh in the upmarket Rajendra Nagar locality here, police said.
The incident occurred at noon when Shiv Shankar Jindal was in his office at Srinivaspuri in New Delhi where he runs a soap and detergent manufacturing company, Jindal Enterprises.
The robbers had been hiding near the house and barged inside when the maid, Sunita, opened to main gate to go to the market. They pushed her inside and threatened her and the family members — wife Anju Jindal (48), son Sugam (20), daughter Sonal (18) and driver Mahmood (30) — at gunpoint, the police said.
The robbers then tied them up and robbed the house. In the meantime, another daughter of the businessman, Shruti, 12, reached home in a rickshaw. As the rickshaw halted near the house, two robbers on guard hurriedly paid the rickshaw puller and brought the girl inside the house.
They took away Rs.1.5 lakh cash and a jewellery, studded with diamond, platinum and gold, which was worth over Rs.50 lakh.
They then fled in Jindal’s car.
Superintendent of Police Avdhesh Kumar Vijaita said: “Eight teams of police officers have been formed to nab the robbers. We hope we will nab the criminals soon.”
