Three strangers whisk him away in a car, snatch the gold biscuits from him and drop him at Yousufguda
A jewellery shop worker was robbed of two kg. of gold biscuits by three persons at Jubilee Bus Stand in Secunderabad on Monday.
Fifty-five-year-old Rajeshwar, working with Om Jewellers in Nirmal town of Adilabad, was walking towards the bus bay after getting off a three-wheeler on the premises of the Jubilee Bus Stand around 3.30 p.m. when three strangers approached him.
They ushered him towards their car parked a few yards away stating that “Anna (elder brother) is calling you.”
They rolled up the window glasses and started towards Begumpet.
“They threatened and beat me up demanding me to give away the gold I was carrying and snatched the gold biscuits,” the complainant told the police.
They dropped him at Yousufguda and sped away threatening him not to raise an alarm. Rajeshwar said that he could not shout while they snatched the gold as he was a TB patient.
Later, he went back to the gold shop in Mahankali area from where he purchased the gold and narrated to them what had happened. Rajeshwar came to the city for purchasing gold on his employer’s direction.
He hid the gold biscuits in the pockets of his pair of trousers and boarded an autorickshaw to reach the Jubilee Bus Stand to catch a bus for Nirmal. “The robbers apparently were following him from the shop where he purchased the gold,” the Marredpally police said.
