According to eyewitnesses and CCTV footage, three unidentified persons on triple-load on an Activa scooter came and then went into the shop. They threatened the owner and started emptying many of the counters and display shelves.

When the owner tried to prevent them, they whipped out a pistol and shot him in the head before speeding away on the scooter with two bags full of the looted jewellery.
