Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, October 19

Two days after a goldsmith was robbed of 150 gm of gold at knifepoint by two unidentified persons in Sector 23, the UT police arrested two persons, including a jeweller, in this connection. The remaining two suspects have been identified by the police, one of whom passed away a few hours after the incident.

Samrat Thandar, a resident of Sector 23, was robbed at his house on October 17.

Two suspects had entered his house during the daytime and robbed gold and a purse containing documents. The third suspect was waiting for them on a bike near the house.

Police sources said Bikas, who has a jewellery shop in Sector 23, had hatched a conspiracy to rob the goldsmith. He had reportedly suffered losses due to the goldsmith and wanted to take revenge.

"Kamlesh, whose motorcycle was used in the crime, Chottu and Rahul — went to the victim's house. Kamlesh waited outside and the two others went inside and robbed the victim," said a police official.

The police said Bikas and Kamlesh had been arrested and some robbed gold had been recovered. "We went to Rahul's house in Nayagaon and found that he passed away due to an illness," said the police official. Chottu is yet to be arrested.
