Investigators on Saturday made little headway in the probe into heist of Rs. 5.25 crore from a cash van in southern Delhi recovering two empty cash trunks from a village in the capital.

Police recovered the empty trunks from Khirki village at around 7.30 a.m. after security guards in the area reported the matter to them.

A senior police official said they were probing whether the criminals had any local links as the cash van was abandoned in Hauz Rani in south Delhi and the cash trunks were left in a nearby village.

Sources said they have examined the CCTV footages and were zeroing in on some criminals. Police said they were also investigating whether the criminals belonged to Haryana.

Armed men on Friday looted Rs. 5.25 crore from the van carrying cash for ATMs in Defence Colony and fled after shooting a guard.

Four to five men in a Hyundai Verna car intercepted the Maruti Eeco van carrying cash in the upscale Defence Colony at around 1 p.m., dragged out four men out of the vehicle at gunpoint and shot at one of the two security guards who resisted them.

The injured guard, Munni Singh, who was rushed to AIIMS, died later.

The cash was taken from ICICI Hauz Khaz branch in south Delhi by Premier Shield, an agency engaged by various banks to replenish ATMs, and was being brought to Lajpat Nagar area, a few kms away when it was waylaid. The gunmen then fled in the cash van.

It has also been found that the car in which the robbers came was stolen. They left the car at the spot.
