Pune: In a broad daylight heist, robbers
today attacked a jewellery shop owner in the main Laxmi Road
market area and decamped with gold and silver ornaments,
police said.

About seven robbers armed with choppers entered the shop
in the afternoon and assaulted the owner and the staff
inflicting serious injuries on them before fleeing with the
booty.

Two of the culprits, however, were caught by members of
public when the owner raised an alarm and came running out
of the shop, bleeding profusely.

Police said a part of the stolen jewellery was recovered
from the arrested robbers and a hunt was on to trace the
absconders, suspected of belonging to an inter-state gang.

President of Pune jewellers Association Fattechand Raka
has condemned the attack demanding greater security for
jewellers` shops in the city.
