One among the intruders also pointed a pistol at Bhat's face and threatened to gun the couple down if they shouted for help. 

Later, they took away a gold chain weighing three sovereigns, a Lord Shiva pendant, a pair of ear lobes and Rs 3,000 in cash. The total amount which the gang took away has been estimated at Rs 1,26,000.
