Jaipur jeweler robbed of 18KG silver

JAIPUR : In Jaipur, masked robbers stole 18 kg of silver from a jewelry shop after threatening the owner with a pistol. The incident, caught on the shop’s CCTV, took place around 9 pm on October 28.

Ghanshyam Soni, the shop owner, was about to close for the day. He had placed two bags outside his shop in Sohan Nagar Mangyawas and was inside the shop when he heard a bike approach. Upon stepping out, he saw a man rush towards the bags.
