Police have traced an Innova car which was used for the crime under Ullal police station limits. Ullal police have recovered 7.5 kg silver and Rs 1.50 lac cash from the car. After seeing police on rounds, the accused fled in another car, leaving the cash and ornaments in the Innova car at K C Road, said sources. When police searched the car they found cash and ornaments. It is suspected that the accused might have taken the rest of the ornaments along with them. It is said that the accused took an Innova car on rent from Surathkal.

    Understandable if a jewellery shop in the precincts of a hustling and bustling crowded metropolis was looted. Look at the area where the shop is situated, it has green plantations around, one would get an impression that the shop is situated at the end of the jungle, so to say ... an ideal soft corner for a thief to wait, strike and plan his next move. Wondering how many thieves carried out rehearsals in the past before striking it rich.

    Its indeed located in an isolated building behind the NH, they had shifted from NH to little behind due to fact that the new planned expansion of NH had acquired the land it existed previously. However i wonder in this technologically sophisticated zamaana, why not the Jewelers use proper alarm systems or many other available security solutions, CCTV is outdated. You can just milk profit, but also need to invest to grow business and safeguard it
