The police today arrested three of the four persons linked to the sensational gold robbery case that took place in Mahbubnagar district's Boinpally area, on December 18.
Speaking to the media after making the arrests, the local police officials said, "About two weeks ago, the miscreants broke into the house of a person named Indra Reddy, who had stored a large amount of gold in his house for the occasion of his daughter's wedding which was to be held on December 23. The thieves stole gold ornaments weighing nearly 200 tolas worth Rs 7 lakh. They committed the theft while the family was sleeping, so the incident came to light only the next day."
Although the search for the fourth accused is still on, the police were able to recover gold worth Rs 30 lakh including the stolen ornaments, two bikes and an auto rickshaw, and Rs 2.80 lakh, from the three accused.
The swift action of the police, who were able to nab the culprits in just under two weeks, prompted SP Rema Rajeshwari to laud the officials for their efforts in nabbing the accused.
The Telangana police have repeatedly reiterated their commitment to creating a crime-free state through swift action. Their efforts have also won them the appreciation of many. Recently, the police arrested notorious burglar Mantri Shankar
along with three of his associates in connection with six burglaries in the city.
