They latched the doors of all other apartments from outside and broke into two, where no one was present. It is clear that the gang had kept a watch on the society and knew who had left their houses,” Lovey said. The CCTV footage shows men clad in briefs and vests thrashing the guard and entering and exiting the building.

Additional SP Subhash Vauche said, “We have registered a case of robbery under Sections 394 (Voluntarily causing hurt in committing robbery) and 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention). The investigations are on and with the help of CCTV footage we are trying to locate the accused.”
