Desi Money Heist: Thieves buy Rs 90 lakh house in Jaipur, then dig 20-foot long tunnel to steal 400 kg silver
New Delhi| Jagran News Desk: In a bizarre robbery reminding us of the famous Spanish crime-drama, 'Money Heist', some thieves in Jaipur dug a 20ft tunnel to get into the basement of a doctor's house, where they executed a loot worth of crores. Well, it's not the same as shown in Money Heist, but the modus-operandi of the thieves is quite inspired by the planning shown in the web-series.
Money Heist is a Spanish criminal-mastermind web series that tells a story of how some thieves led by 'The Professor -- the lead character of the show -- plan, execute and carry out a robbery in the Royal Mint of Spain by hijacking the place and looting the money through a long tunnel.
According to the report in Dainik Jagran, 400 kg of Silver has been robbed from the house of Dr Sumit Soni, a transplant doctor who lives in Vaishali Nagar in Jaipur. Dr Sumit Soni filed a complaint on Wednesday that boxes of silver have been stolen from the basement of the house two days ago. In his complaint, he said that he found a long tunnel in his basement.
Further investigation in the matter revealed that the thieves bought a house near the doctor's residents a few months ago and dug a long tunnel leading to Dr Sumit's basement. The robbers stole 3 boxes of silver which are worth crores. The police said that it appears that someone close has passed on this crucial information to the thieves and helped in this robbery.
During the investigation, the Jaipur police have arrested a person named Banwari, under whose name the plot was bought. Raj Singh Beniwal, ACP, Vaishali Nagar, as quoted by PTI, said, "We have zeroed on a few suspects and have leads. We might get a breakthrough in the case very soon."
However, there is another twist in this case as the plot bought by the robbers originally belongs to Shikhar Agarwal, who is a jeweller in Jaipur and had reportedly advised Dr Sumit to invest in silver. Now the Jaipur police have been trying to catch other suspects in the case to find out the mastermind of the robbery.
