A day after an employee of a cash-collection agency claimed to have been robbed of Rs 9 lakh at gunpoint in the bustling Phase-5 market of SAS Nagar, the police continue to grope in the dark.
The police on Tuesday questioned the employees of Pizza Hut, Dominos and Reliance Fresh in Phase-5, from where private firm Cash Management Services (CMS) employee Pawan Kumar collected Rs 9 lakh. But the police failed to extract vital information from Kumar who was questioned for several hours.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, crime investigating agency incharge, Gurcharan Singh said: "We have got some vital clues regarding the robbery and are hopeful of solving the case in a couple of days."
The police are connecting this robbery with the Panckula incident, wherein the employee of the same company was shot at in sectors 11-14 dividing road and Rs 18 lakh was looted from him in January this year. Interestingly, in both the incidents, four youths, including the turbaned youth, were involved and two bikes were used in both the cases. The accused of the Panchkula robbery are still at large.
