Mangaluru, Nov 16, 2015 : The Mangaluru  Rural Police have arrested three persons in connection with the case wherein  five textile merchants who were travelling by a Scorpio vehicle were robbed of cash of Rs 1.3 lakhs apart from other goods worth Rs 1.44 lakhs during  the wee hours of November 15, Sunday. Meanwhile search  is on  for two other accused.

Bajal theft case

The incident had reportedly taken place near the Bajal Railway Cross when the  vehicle in which Bhurra Ram from Rajasthan and his friends were travelling  from Mangaluru towards BC Road was intercepted by four  unidentified assailants.

 It has been gathered that the assailants  who brandished knives and pistols,  robbed the cash,  cell phones and other valuables from the merchants before  fleeing from the spot.

The suspicion is that one  Bhanwar Maharaj who was driving the vehicle  might have abetted the crime as he had driven the vehicle towards Kankanady Railway station instead  of towards BC Road.

Further investigations are underway.
