Robbers attack Aquem woman

In a daring day light robbery, unknown miscreants attacked a 60-year old woman at her residential apartment at Aquem and decamped with valuables, including gold ornaments this evening.

The incident occurred when three miscreants effected entry into the flat on the pretext of repairing the computers in the flat. When the woman Girija Dattatrey turned her back to make a telephonic call to her husband to confirm whether he had sent the trio to repair the phone, they attacked her with a cricket bat on her head.

DySP Mohan Naik said the woman fell unconscious, giving enough time for the two accused to lift away the valuables.

The accused relieved the woman of her ornaments from her person worth over Rs 1.5 lakh, besides cash of Rs 5000 from the cupboard.

She was later rushed to a private hospital, where she had to undergo a scan.
