Nagpur Police Puzzle Over Rs 4.38 Crore Robbery: CCTV Hunt for 7-Member Gang

SUV Intercepted on Outskirts, Cash Belonged to Businessman, Insiders Suspected

Nagpur, Maharashtra: A brazen daylight robbery of Rs 4.38 crore has sent shockwaves through Nagpur, with police grappling to apprehend a 7-member armed gang and untangle a web of conflicting stories surrounding the stolen cash.

The incident occurred two days ago on the Outer Ring Road, near Kotewara village. The unsuspecting victims, Rupesh Parmar and Jayesh Patel, were transporting the cash in a Tata Nexon SUV when they were ambushed by the perpetrators traveling in a Toyota Innova and a Maruti Swift Dzire.

CCTV Hunt for Getaway Vehicles:

Despite the audacious nature of the crime, the attackers left several crucial clues. Police are currently scrutinizing CCTV footage captured at various points along the route, focusing on identifying the getaway vehicles and tracing their movements. This footage analysis plays a crucial role in understanding the gang’s escape route and potentially identifying their hideout.

Hawala Suspicions and Conflicting Ownership Claims:

Initial investigations revealed the cash belonged to Popatlal Patel, a Surat-based businessman, and was allegedly being transported for “hawala” transactions, an illegal money transfer system. However, conflicting reports have emerged, with some media outlets suggesting the true owner was Kamlesh Shah from Mumbai, who had entrusted Patel with the cash for a property purchase. This discrepancy adds another layer of complexity to the case, raising questions about the true nature of the transaction and the motive behind the robbery.

Insider Job?:

Further muddying the waters, reports also point towards the possibility of an inside job. Speculation suggests someone within Patel’s office might have tipped off the gang about the cash movement, providing crucial details facilitating the robbery. This possibility adds another dimension to the investigation, requiring deep scrutiny of Patel’s employees and associates.

Delayed Reporting Raises Eyebrows:

Adding to the intrigue, the victims only reported the incident to the Hingna Police Station a surprising 24 hours after it occurred. This delay has raised eyebrows and prompted further investigation into the victims’ and their potential involvement in the case.

Police Determined to Crack the Case:

Undeterred by the complexities, Nagpur police are committed to cracking this high-profile case. A dedicated team is working tirelessly, analyzing CCTV footage, interviewing witnesses, and following leads to apprehend the perpetrators and recover the stolen money.
