Kasargod, Oct 25, 2015: The Kasargod police have arrested a person said to be the prime accused in the case of robbery of cash and huge quantity of gold from the Eriyal branch of Koodlu Co-operative Bank during broad daylight.
The accused is Mujeeb hailing from Koodlu Chowki. He was a resident of Bandyod and was arrested at Ernakulam.
If a total of nearly 20 kg of gold was stolen from the Bank on September 7, police suspect that Mujeeb might be in possession of nearly 7 kg gold out of it.
It has been gathered that the police learnt about Mujeeb hiding in Ernakulam when he was trying to get anticipatory bail from the High Court.
Further investigations are underway.
