Guwahati: Two bike-borne youths allegedly looted Rs 5 lakh from a woman in Guwahati’s Magzine area on Wednesday.
This was the third case of daylight robbery in Guwahati this year. Last month, two similar incidents took place in Guwahati’s Lachit Nagar and Jayanagar.
As per information, the miscreants were tailing Jaya Rajkhowa, who was travelling in a shared taxi. Immediately after she got down from the taxi in the Magzine area, the miscreants snatched the bag containing the cash. Rajkhowa lodged a complaint at the Noonmati police station and an investigation has been initiated regarding the incident.
On January 19, bike-borne persons allegedly looted Rs 3 lakh from a person in Guwahati’s Lachit Nagar area. The incident took place when an employee of a gas agency went to deposit a cash amount of Rs 3.04 lakh in a bank.
Another similar incident took place on January 13 when bike-borne miscreants looted around Rs 2 lakh from a man, Anil Shah, in Guwahati’s Jayanagar area. Shah had withdrawn the money from a nearby bank and was heading home when the incident happened.
