Three armed men barged into a paint store on the busy Sirhind road here this afternoon and robbed its owner of Rs25,000. The police are conducting raids to arrest the robbers.

According to the police, the three men entered Barnala Paint Store and one of them tried to shoot its owner, but the weapon misfired. “According to the video footage obtained from the CCTV camera installed at the shop, the robbers threatened the shop owner and one of them took away Rs25,000 from the cash counter,” said the police.

The police said they were investigating the matter. Though the pistol looks like a toy, they are not ruling out the use of a countrymade weapon that misfired. “The robbers came on foot and the CCTV cameras installed nearby are being checked,” said DSP Saurab Jindal.
