Police should check out for CCTV near by if any
Very sad Indeed !! But what a time of the purported crime to take place??? How come these elderly people step out of their home at 1.40 pm or so in the rather stillness of a summer afternoon and that the old lady had on her person(wearing) about 106 grams gold ornaments worth about Rs.4.71 lakhs. Sounds funny though. Gives these thugs a fine chance to commit their crime……….
If you look from their perspective…may be no one is there to help them out to buy groceries…going out around mid afternoon to buy groceries will have less rush… wearing gold from past years is habitual in all elders.
Robbers are interested in looting cash & gold items. They rarely cause lethal harm to the victims……..
Same incident happened with my father too. It happened last year but police have failed to nab the robbery team.
My father is also a senior citizen and the incident happened with my him near Srinagar.
Robbers flee the spot but irrespective of so many CCTV’s, police is unable to identify them.
