Three including security guard abstaining from duty picked up in connection with daring robbery at Guwahati jewellery outlet

May 10 (NL Web Desk): Guwahati Police have picked up three persons, including the security guard abstaining from duty, in connection with the robbery at a jewellery outlet in Guwahati on Tuesday night.
Police picked up Prem Singh, the security guard who had been abstaining from duty at MP Jewellers from where a four-member armed group of masked robbers robbed jewellery and cash worth around Rs 5 crore, from his residence at Hojai. Two other persons have also been picked up in connection with the daring robbery.
The four-member group of armed robbers, wearing red caps and black masks, had entered the jewellery store located at the busy GS Road around 7:20pm Tuesday and robbed jewellery weighing nearly 8 kilograms along with cash that totaled to a staggering Rs 5 crore within a span of four minutes.
The robbers threatened the sales staff of the jewellery outlet with dire consequences if they tried to act smart after firing a shot in the air and then broke the glass showcases with hammers before making good their escape with the gold and cash.
Police, meanwhile, say they were working on a few leads and are hopeful of arresting the robbers.
