Salt Lake dacoity: Cops close to cracking case
Two days have passed since the dacoity incident took place at the CE block of Salt Lake and the police are yet to arrest anybody in this connection so far.
While investigating into the incident, the investigating officers have found certain leads in this connection and have also managed to get some important information. After going through the CCTV footages, police have got some relevant information in this incident.
As per the preliminary investigation, police suspect that the dacoits came with toy guns which became evident after a box of toy pistols was recovered from the place of the incident.

On Sunday, police interrogated the family members on various factors that have come up before the investigating officers during the investigation. Senior police officers of the Bidhannagwar Commissionerate are tight-lipped about the incident. They, however, said that the case will be cracked soon.
Police said that a gang of around 8 miscreants looted valuables worth Rs nearly 10 lakh from a three storied apartment in Salt Lake. Police had published the sketches of two prime accused on Saturday. The incident took place when the house owner Amarnath Chakraborty was away from and four women members of the family, including a maid was present in the house. Miscreants locked up the four members in separate rooms and tied them with pieces of clothes and looted valuables and hard cash at gun point.
During the interrogation, the police on Sunday, wanted to know from the family members, the names of the persons who had recently visited the houses for various purposes and also asked them if they suspect anybody being involved in the incident. It is quite clear to the police that the miscreants knew that valuables were there in the house and that is why they hatched the plan. Police are conducting raids at various places to nab the culprits.
