Police have got definite leads about four persons involved in the heist at the Air India cargo terminal near the airport in Mumbai, a top official said on Thursday.

"We have positive leads on who the four persons involved in the robbery are, and are in the process of nabbing them," Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime), Rakesh Maria said.

No arrest has been made yet in the case, he said.

Police officials have, however, not ruled out the involvement of an insider who they suspect might have provided information regarding the transport of cargo on Monday.

Four masked robbers entered the Air India cargo terminal on May 25 and escaped with gold and silver coins worth approximately Rs 35 lakh. One security guard was killed while he was trying to stop the robbers from escaping.

The coins were part of a consignment of Hyderabad-based Pidilite, being sent by the National Refinery.
