Four persons were arrested on Friday on the charge of robbing an engineering student near Rushikonda.

A second year B.Tech student of GITAM University boarded a share-autorickshaw at Rushikonda to go to MVP Colony on December 18, 2012.

Auto driver Ch. Siva and three occupants — N. Ramaswami, Varaprasad, and D. Varma — allegedly beat up the student and took away his gold ring, mobile phone, and cash, and dumped him on the way and fled.

On a complaint filed by the victim, the PM Palem police registered a case. Based on the registration number of the auto, the police nabbed the accused. The stolen valuables were recovered and the auto was seized.
