Berhampur, Sept 19 (LocalWire): Police today arrested three teenagers, including two students, in connection with looting around Rs 1.94 lakh cash by attacking a person at Asura Ghati under Gajapati district’s Sheranga police station limits.
While one of the accused was identified as Bijay Kumar Mishal of Nuagada, a class X dropout, other two are studying in Class IX and Plus II, said SP (Gajapati) Sarah Sharma.
Police recovered the cash as the trio confessed of committing the crime.
The accused attacked Suryakant Senapati, an employee of a private finance company on Tuesday while he was returning from Nuagada to Paralakhemundi, after collecting the money and looted him.
When Senapati told police that the trio fled towards a nearby hillock, police went and recovered a mobile phone from there.
That led them to Bijay who during interrogation revealed his accomplices’ names, police said.
