PANVEL GARMENT STORE ROBBED OF ` 2.5 LAKH
A garment store at Panvel was broken into on Friday and clothes and Rs2.5 lakh cash missing on Friday. However, even after two days, the police have not been able to find any clue about the culprits.
The police said the accused entered Prince Collection by breaking the lock at the main entrance. Within a few minutes, they stole the cash and fled. The owner, Ramlal Chaudhary, came to know about the theft when he came to the shop around 7.30am.
“Some traders told us that the locks were intact even after midnight. We think the culprits had planned the crime and were waiting for the right time to loot the shop. Some people from the same neighbourhood could also be involved in the crime,” said a police officer from Panvel city police station.
“A case under section 454, 457 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code has been registered,” he said.
