Mansarovar robbery with Miraj group employee.

Jaipur: Even five days after four bike borne men shot at an employee of Miraj FoodMart outside St Anselm’s School in Mansarovar and robbed him of Rs 45 lakh, the local police is clueless about the identity of the culprits. The police teams are studying the footages of the CCTVs installed in the area, but they have apparently provided no clue.

The Jaipur commissionerate has formed teams to nab the robbers and send them to various places for investigation. Since it is suspected that someone known to the victim might have committed the robbery, many people are being quizzed by the police. The police are also looking into the possibility of a conspiracy.

The employee identified as Naresh Saini walked out of the office along with a coworker with the day’s collection when the robbery took place. The victim sustained bullet injuries and was rushed to a hospital for treatment in critical condition. The loot created panic in the area.

The police are trying to identify three bikes used in the robbery.

The food mart is located in Mangyawas area of Mansarovar. Naresh Saini was carrying nearly Rs 45 lakh, while the coworker had Rs 8 lakh in another bag. As soon as they came out of the office, four men on two bikes approached him and opened firing. He sustained bullet injures near his waist. The robbers snatched away the bag from Naresh and drove away.
