Keonjhar: Two bike-borne miscreants looted gold ornaments worth Rs 20 lakh from a jeweler at Dhenkikote market under Ghatagaon police limits in Keonjhar today.
According to reports, the incident occurred when the owner of Kailash Jewellers was opening his shop this morning.
The miscreants came on a Pulsar bike and snatched away a bag containing ornaments and fled from the spot. Sources said the duo escaped from Dhenkikote towards Patana side after committing the crime.
It is believed that the criminals are part of the same gang that had looted gold chain and other valuables from several women in the locality in the past few days.
A complaint in connection with today’s loot has been registered while a detailed probe has started, police said.
