Muthoot Finance Robbery Attempt: Have Police Zeroed In On Suspect?
Hyderabad: Cordon-and-search operations at My Homes Housing Palace at Rajendranagar notwithstanding, police have not yet made any arrests in Tuesday’s robbery attempt at the office of the Muthoot Finance in Mailardevpalli area of Hyderabad.
Around 300 policemen, including commandos of Organisation for Counter-Terror Operations (OCTOPUS), had on Tuesday night surrounded the apartment complex, where over 3,000 families reside in nine different blocks. The getaway Chevrolet Tavera car was traced to the complex following extensive use of CC TVs. It was parked in front of one of the blocks of the complex.
Police have searched over 700 flats, but have not revealed information regarding any suspects. It is believed one of the complex’s residents may have been in touch with the robbers. More details are expected from the Cyberabad Police.
According to information, the watchman of the apartment raised an alarm when he noticed a couple of men attempting to break the identity plate of a car numbered TS 12EB-5711. On verification with RTA officials, the number turned out to be benami. On checking the chassis number, the car was found to be registered in Gujarat.
Though the apartment complex is said to be known as mini-India, as people from across the country are living there, its residents also include many, who relocated to Hyderabad from Gujarat following the Godhra incidents.
