The police claimed to have averted a dacoity with the arrest of two armed men near an art gallery at Colaba.

Iqbal Shaikh, 40, and Mohammed Shaikh, 42, were arrested on Thursday near Jehangir Art Gallery when they were meeting three of their accomplices.

They were planning to rob shops at Colaba Causeway in the evening. “We have launched a manhunt for the remaining three,” said Iqbal Shaikh, assistant commissioner of police (Colaba division).

The police found a country-made revolver, two bullets and a chopper from the arrested duo.
