Peshawar: Robbers loot gold, valuables
PESHAWAR: In yet another incident of daylight robbery in the crowded part of the provincial capital, three armed men broke into the house of a local in Gulbahar and looted 70 tolas of gold ornaments and valuables on Wednesday.
Police report said that three armed men broke into the house of Muhammad Fayyaz, a resident of Al Sayyed Street in Gulbahar No-4 settled in US, when his son Asfandyar was out for shopping.
The armed men, who were having a master key, held the wife of Fayyaz and her children hostage at gunpoint and looted 70 tolas of gold ornaments, Rs150,000 cash, four cellular phones and other valuables. The robbers managed to escape before police or neighbours could notice anything happening inside the house. The incidents of robberies and dacoities are on the rise in the provincial capital for the last many weeks and the police seem to have failed in busting the gangs and curbing the incidents.
