Lahore: Rs11.7m house robbery
LAHORE, Jan 26: Four robbers looted cash, foreign currency, gold ornaments and other valuables worth Rs11.7 million from the house of a trader in Shadbagh police limits on Thursday.
Haji Mushtaq Ahmad, who deals in iron scrap in Misri Shah market, told Dawn by phone that four masked robbers stormed into his house on Sher Shah Road around 1:15 noon, held female family members and two maids at gunpoint. They locked the women in a room, collected Rs500,000 in cash, few hundred Saudi Riyals, 225-tola gold ornaments, four wristwatches and other valuables and fled after a half-an-hour spree.
Mushtaq said the women were so terrorised that they couldn’t alert the police soon after the incident.
The police have registered a case.
