Rs 4 lakh stolen from e-commerce godown, four nabbed
RAJKOT: Four robbers who had robbed Rs 3.93 lakh cash from the warehouse of e-commerce major Flipkart in Arohi Chamber on Morbi-Wankaner Road in Morbi on Tuesday night were arrested on Wednesday.

Police said the accused, Kalpesh Makwana, Vishal Muchhadia, Ramesh Makwana and Lalit Solanki, were arrested from Morbi railway crossing on Maliya Road.

The accused had allegedly barged into the godown of Flipkart and committed the loot after beating up the warehouse manager, Dhananjay Rajyaguru, a resident of Greenhill Apartment on Ravapar Road in Morbi. They committed the loot, brandishing an air gun and a knife. 

While the crime was being committed, Rajyaguru’s phone was on, and his wife was able to hear what was happening at the other end. The robbers noticed this and switched off the phone. 

However, by that time, Rajyaguru’s wife informed Rajyaguru’s father Vasudev who in turn alerted the police. 

“We swung into action and cordoned off various roads in Morbi. Though the robbers had broken the CCTV camera of the godown, its digital video recorder (DVR) had remained intact, in which robbers were clearly visible. We traced the accused near Morbi railway crossing and found the air gun, the knife and the cash on them,” said R T Vyas, sub-inspector of Morbi local crime branch.
