Two men on a bike allegedly robbed a goldsmith of gold ornaments worth Rs 13.5 lakh near Swargate on Wednesday afternoon. Police are yet to nab the robbers.
According to Swargate Police, goldsmith Mohammad Mufiz-ul-Islam of Ravivar Peth who prepares ornaments for jewellery firms on contract was carrying ornaments he had made for Swapnil Enterprises.
Around 4.20 pm when he was crossing Navloba Mandir on his bike (MH 12 DX 490), the suspects bumped their bike into Mufiz-ul-Islam's bike and abused him. He ignored them and went on. When he reached Savarkar statue he was overtaken by the men who allegedly threatened him with a knife, assaulted him and forced him to part with the ornaments.
" The suspects are at large. As there are discrepancies in the victim's account we are trying to verify his version. It's quite impossible that the robbers went without being noticed at the busy road. The question is unanswered why the victim didn't raise an alarm. He approached us two hours after the incident," said Ram Pathare, senior police inspector, Swargate Police Station.
