The Ghatkopar police, investigating the armed robbery at a jewellery shop last week, have been unable to identify the accused from the CCTV camera footage in the area. However, they have prepared a sketch of one of the accused and are in the process of tracing his whereabouts.

Last Friday, three men entered RG Jewellers located on the crowded MG Road in Ghatkopar (West). The three accused looted 2kg gold worth Rs56 lakh from the shop by holding Shah at gunpoint and later walked out.

The officials scanned the cameras located at the Ghatkopar station after the owner of the shop, Tanaklal Champaklal Shah, 38, told them that the accused had walked towards the station after looting the shop.

"Although it was suspicious that they would walk after looting a shop, we checked the footage near the station. We also checked two CCTV cameras in the neighbouring jeweller's shops, which are directed towards the road, but it was of no use," said Rajkumar Kothmire, police inspector of Ghatkopar police said.

Initial investigation has revealed that the trio was conversing in Hindi, resembling north Indian dialect.

The police said that they had penned down a sketch on the basis of the description given by Shah.

"Shah could provide description of only one accused. He said the person is 5 feet 9 inches tall and is slim and is of wheatish complexion. We have circulated the sketch to other police stations and are in the process of tracing their whereabouts," said Kothmire.
