    Ajay Rebello,kalliyanpur,Udipi is not a industrie area,and it is a big studies centre,and health centre.Industries dont fit there.Industries should be built out of cities bacause of health centres.I am sure this particular robbery was made from insiders who knew when he was going to bring fish with money.Such a murder was done long back in kankanady too of a man who was going to market with money ,May be people should not keep money in one place,but different pockets.A fake mobile to carry too is a good tip.sad such gangs are simply threaten people and rob money.Now everyone is having mobile mostly costly and best chance to make money.
