Before committing the robbery and murder, the robbers had tried to break into the house of a former Rajasthan high court judge and former cabinet minister Heeralal Indora. When they couldn’t break into their house, they targeted the Bisaria family.

When the robbers were trying to break into the minister’s house, some people in the neighborhood in fact woke up and raised an alarm. They informed the police control room. A police team reached the spot immediately. The robbers managed to loot the Bisaria family despite that.

As the cops faced flak for lethargy in preventing the crime, they launched a massive search for the robbers.

According to preliminary reports, the police have arrested the five persons in connection with the robbery and murder in Mansarovar. Sources said that the women lived in a makeshift colony of tribals in Sikar. One of the robbers was going there to meet them when he and the two women were held.

The robbers were fearless to such an extent that they didn’t take into account the fact that Sanjeev Bhatnagar himself lives in the adjacent house.
