Bengaluru: 19-year-old girl among five held in robbery case

They have been accused of committing robbery at D.B. Chandru’s house

BENGALURU: Banashankari police have arrested a gang of five members, including a 19-year-old girl, who barged into the house of a project manager with a real estate firm at R K Layout in Padmanabhanagar and took away valuables and cash after assaulting him on April 21.

The arrested have been identified as Kadireshan alias Karthik alias Handi, 24, a resident of Bilakahalli, Charan, 22, from Adarsha Layout in Hongasandra, Udaya, 25, of SRK Garden in Tilaknagar, Suresh alias Chimpanzee, 23, of Urs Colony, and Nikita alias Nikki, 19, of Thattaguppe.

They have been accused of committing robbery at D.B. Chandru’s house. Chandru met Nikita at a resort some months ago and they became friends.

Learning that he is well off, she hatched a plot to rob him of his money and valuables. The accused have been remanded in judicial custody.

Concern over misuse of MLA car pass

Police Commissioner M.N.Reddi has said that the police had received several complaints on public using duplicate MLA car passes and they would write to government in this regard.

Addressing a press conference here on Friday, Reddi said, “We would suggest to the officials concerned to make passes foolproof by using holography or other technology, so that people cannot duplicate and misuse them.”

The matter gained significance as a gang of dacoits had used an MLA car pass in a recent case. In a dacoity case reported in the house of a realtor, identified as Prakash, in Mahalakshmi Layout last Monday, the miscreants were found standing in front of the house with a car bearing a duplicate MLA car pass.
