Police have already questioned several  suspects and are of the strong belief that the thieves might be locals as they were reportedly speaking in Tulu and broken Hindi.

Meanwhile, a cell phone which the robbers had snatched from one of the occupants of the house was found discarded in a nearby hill. It is believed that the thieves had well planned the robbery as they had completed their task within three hours.
