Mangaluru: The police have arrested ten persons in connection to a daylight robbery case at the residence of Vishnu Bhat at Ambatemoole Padekarya of Puttur.

Addressing a news conference, District Superintendent of Police Bhushan Gulabrao Borase said that the accused are Krishna Shetty (35), a resident of Krishnapura, Milan alias Dhanush (24) of Suratkal, Rupesh Kumar alias Rupee (26) of Suratkal, Wilton Alwyn Pinto (24), a resident of Katipalla, Bharath (19) of Suratkal, Rakesh Alias Rakee (19) of Soorinje, Rathan Raj (25) of Krishnapura, Suresh Acharya (34) from Puttur, Praveen Kumar (23) from Sullia, and Shabary Kumar Naik (24) from Puttur.

Two more accused – Yashodar Shetty (38) of Katipalla and Nagesh of Jokatte are still at large.

On October 25, the accused had tied up the occupants of the house- the lady of the house and her maid and fled with valuable.

The local villagers believed that Vishnu Bhat’s house had a treasure and Shabari Kumar, who was working in the areca plantation of Vishnu Bhat found it suspicious when Bhat’s wife restricted him from going near a small temple inside their house.

Soon Shabari informed about the same to his friend Praveen Kumar, who contacted Suresh Acharya, a goldsmith. Acharya then contacted some rowdies, who in turn gave him a suggestion to get into touch with Yashodhar Shetty, an accused in Pandu Pai murder case.

Thus the gang of ten had crashed into the house expecting to take away tresure worth crores, but to their dismay they had got valuable worth only Rs 50,000.
