Police arrest eight in Aditya Motors loot case

Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate Police unveiled the Aditya Motors loot case here on Sunday arresting the main accused and seven others and recovered cash worth Rs.11 lakh, some gold jewellery and 3 motorbikes from their possession.

Few days’ back six bike-borne miscreants looted Rs 20 lakh from a bank employee near Kuakhai Bridge under Mancheswar police station on April 23 at gunpoint.

According to the police, the mastermind behind the loot was an ex-employee of Axis Bank of Bhomikhol branch who informed the dacoits about the bank employee carrying cash from Aditya Motors on the fateful day.

Since the police could not recover the whole loot amount from their possession, it believed the dacoits must have purchased gold with the money.
