Chittoor One-Town police on Wednesday arrested two members of an interstate gang that was reportedly involved in the March 22 break-in in Chittoor.
According to Circle Inspector (Chittoor One-Town) Narasimha Raju, a gang of four from Haryana broke into an apartment in Kattamanchi, Chittoor on March 22nd and decamped with 260 grams of gold jewelry, 7 kg of silver jewelry and £ 4 lakh cash after an elderly woman was intimidated. Following a complaint from family members, the police registered one case and started an investigation.
On Wednesday morning, police carried out regular vehicle checks at Rangampeta Cross in Puthalapattu Mandal, 20 km from here. When a car saw the police, it attempted a U-turn but was intercepted. When they found the movements of the two inmates suspicious, they were taken into custody. The police confiscated a car used by the defendant while searching for two more and the stolen property.
During interrogation, the duo were identified as Amith Parmar, 20, and Gowrav Parmar, 23, from the Dadri district of Haryana, who broke into their homes on March 22nd. The duo have also been wanted on multiple incidents of break-ins in Rajasthan and other northern states. The duo were sent to pre-trial detention.
