Guwahati robbery: Detained trio arrested, confirms Assam DGP

May 11 (NL Web Desk): Assam DGP Mukesh Sahay Thursday confirmed the arrested of the three persons who were detained in connection with the daring robbery at a jewellery store in Guwahati on Tuesday night.
Prem Singh, the security guard of MP Jewellers where the four-member gang of robbers had struck, along with two others — Nilkamal Singh and Basanta Singh — were arrested by Guwahati Police after interrogating them in connection with the daring robbery.
“We have arrested three persons who were earlier detained in connection with Tuesday night’s robbery at MP Jewellery. Among the three arrested is the security guard of the outlet who had abstained from duty for three days,” Sahay said.
Basanta Singh, incidentally, is related to Prem Singh while the third arrested person was known to him.
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 totalled 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.
