The law enforcement officials have been able to recover some cash and gold from the culprits. According to the police, there are three more people who are allegedly involved in the act and the police are trying to search them.
The revealing fact that has, however, emerged from the incident is that how three of the people, who are believed to be involved in the act, were employees in the jewellery store.
The police claimed that the main reason for them to get employed in the store was to get vital information about the store so that it will become easier for them to steal.
Working according to the plan, the employees who also had the skill of cutting the tiles came to know the alternate location of the store and executed it perfectly to carry out the heist. The robbers were able to steal the amount of jeweller valued between Rs 12-13 crore. They also had the perfect plan to flee to Nepal, however, their luck ran out and they were arrested by the police.
The incident follows after another daring heist of Rs 37 lakh being stolen from a gas agency manager. In the incident, the mastermind in the act too worked in the firm for some time to understand the processes through which he can target the gas agency manager. Realising that the money was being deposited in the bank, which was opening after the gap of three days, the robber struck.
There is a huge demand of contractual worker in Gurugram. Taking cognisance of the law and order challenge posed by the workers, the Gurugram police have sent various directives asking the organisations to register the workers.
According to police sources, most of the firms have begun to register their workers while there are companies which are not following the directives.
