Two masked men loot ₹80,000 from finance firm’s office in Mohali
Also snatch the mobile phone of a manager of the firm, located at Sohana village on the Landran Road.
Masked robbers made off with Rs 80,000 within minutes from a finance company at Sohana village on the Landran Road on Saturday.
Janvi, a manager at the firm, UP Money, complained to the police that the men arrived at their office around 11am with a bag. They forcibly snatched the Rs 80,000 lying on the counter and fled in no time.
The CCTV camera outside the office captured the men entering and leaving.
Investigating officer sub-inspector Barma Singh said the robbers also snatched the complainant’s mobile phone before fleeing.
Deputy superintendent of police (City 2) Deep Kamal Singh said they were probing the matter from various angles, while not ruling out an insider job.
On the manager’s complaint, a case was registered at the Sohana police station.
