Athagarh, Mar 31:
Three unidentified burglars last night looted Rs 4 lakh and gold jewellery from the house of a businessman in Kantola village under Athagarh police limits of Cuttack.
As per the family of the victim, the miscreants – who had masked their faces, knocked on the doors and windows of the house making house owner Sarat Chandra Barik open the window.
They immediately took him at gunpoint and forced his wife to open the main door. Once inside, they severely beat up family members and fled the spot with the cash and jewellery.
The family later lodged a complaint with the local police in this context.
The cops have started an investigation and conducting raids at various places. No one, however, has been arrested so far.
