Four armed robbers barged into the office of AH Alloys, a steel company, on the Gill Road this afternoon and allegedly looted Rs 6.72 lakh. The accused had come on two motorcycles.

ADCP Jaskiranjit Singh Teja said the incident took place around 1.45 pm when AH Alloys manager Jagwant Singh and a servant, Durga Parsad, were present in the office. A few minutes earlier, Nirmal Singh, the cashier of Trust Support System at Focal Point, had come to the office to deposit a payment of Rs 5 lakh.

A robber wearing a helmet allegedly knocked at the office door by posing as a courier boy. When Durga opened the door, three more masked robbers barged into the office. The robbers allegedly pointed a gun at the manager and asked him to hand over cash to them. They tied all three present in the office to chairs with a piece of cloth.

A robber took Rs 1.72 lakh cash from an almirah and signalled his aides to leave. However, when they were leaving, one of the robbers saw the bag, containing Rs 5 lakh under Nirmal's chair and they took that as well.

ADCP Teja said CCTV cameras were installed in the office and technical experts were called to scan the DVR so that the accused could be identified.
