It’s the first of its case where the footage reveals the entire series of events- right from the women scaling a 12-feet boundary wall to smashing and opening the locks to flee with valuables worth Rs 5 lakh.
The incident took place in Kavinagar Industrial area; a plot numbered E-217 of Ghaziabad. The incident came into light when the owner of the property Vineet Tyagi found the main entrance as well as shed of the property lying wide open.
