The thieves  tried to escape after robbing  cash and gold by throwing chilly powder and attacking them.

Locals who came to know about this, tried to stop the thieves  who took a turn near the border gate at Gundia, in the process injuring a few who were waiting there. Once the vehicle reached the temple near Shiradi border, the thieves abandoned their vehicle and fled.

The one person whom locals managed to arrest has been identified as Basavaraja Reddy from Chintamani. Irate locals even damaged the Scorpio vehicle of the thieves.
