Panaji: Four jail guards attached to the high security Aguada central prison in Goa were arrested early on Sunday while trying to rob a truck driver on a national highway, police said.

The guards - Ankush Naik, Vishal Naik, Keshav Gawas and Dinesh Warang - were caught around 3 a.m. at Ponda, 30 km from here.

"They were attacking a truck driver and trying to rob him near the Kundaim industrial estate, when they saw a police control room van approaching. They tried to flee on their motorcycles, but they were arrested after a chase," police inspector CL Patil said.

He added that the quartet was even dressed for the crime - in black.
