Mangaluru, Dec 05, 2015: An attempt to loot the Muthoot Finance office at Kulai near Suratkal by some unidentified assailants at gun point has been reported on December 5, Saturday morning.
The strangers who arrived by a Maruti Omni reportedly threatened the office staff by pointing pistols at them. Sources said the suspected dacoits made good their way when the siren sounded.
This futile bid to loot the finance company at a time when the SK Goldsmith Co-operative Bank burglary case of Kinnigoli is still afresh in public minds, has created a sort of panic among locals.
Further details are awaited.
