Meerut: Police on Thursday claimed to have solved the Bulandshahar jewelry shop robbery case by arresting three people, including a 22-year-old youth. The three accused had allegedly robbed a gold chain worth Rs 20 lakh from a jewelry shop in the Khurja area of Bulandshahar on June 4. Following the broad daylight robbery, the local business community expressed dismay at the safety standards in the city. After this, IG Meerut directed the police to expose the case at the earliest.
With the help of a CCTV security camera app and call location tracking, the accused have been identified as 22-year-old BTech student Ankit Tewatia, his childhood friend 21-year-old Chirag Agarwal, and 24-year-old jeweler, Akshay Soni. He has told the police that he had borrowed money from others to invest in the stock market. However, he lost his investment as the market fell. So he planned to rob the shop to pay off the debt.
Bulandshahar SSP Shlok Kumar told that Tewatia, a third-year student in a college in Noida, has suffered a loss of a few lakhs in the stock market in the last two years. When his lenders start pressuring him to repay, Teotia along with two of his associates decide to rob the jewelry store. Police have recovered 10 gold chains and one lakh rupees (in cash) from the accused.
