Jaywant Madhukar Khode (45), who’s a cashier at the Tajshree Honda showroom, was robbed of Rs 10,68,826 on Wednesday night, by his former co-worker and his three accomplices near Ramkrishna Nagar, Nagpur.
The incident took place at around 8:20 pm when Khode, in possession of the cash, along with his co-worker Durgesh Vasudev Pardhi, was headed towards the showroom’s owner Rahul Ramesh Bhute’s residence at North Samarth Nagar, Nagpur. The duo was travelling on a two wheeler (MH-31/TC/530) and Khode had kept the cash wrapped in a red cloth in the dickey of the two-wheeler.
Khode and Pardhi, on their way to Bhute’s home, were stopped by former employee of the showroom – Rahul Raju Bhaskar – and his three accomplices near Ramkrishna Nagar. The four people snatched the keys of the two-wheeler and started beating up Khode and Pardhi, who somehow managed to run away leaving the cash and two-wheeler behind. The accused then took the two-wheeler and the cash with them.
PSI Rathod from Dhantoli Police, on the basis of a complaint from Khode, has registered the case against Bhaskar and his friends under sections 323, 392 and 34 of the IPC. Further investigations are going on.
