PALAKKAD: Four women stole gold of 54 sovereigns on the pretext of purchasing it from a jewellery shop in the city in broad daylight. The incident happened at Thulasi Jewellery near the Jobees Mall on the busy G B Road at 10 am Wednesday morning.
The team who came to the shop carrying a baby on the pretext of purchasing gold first went through the ornaments displayed in a white box. As they were not satisfied with it asked for another model. When the employees went inside, two women went out with the ornaments of the first box. The other two were in the shop itself.
When the employees came with the new set, the two women examined it keenly. They showed no interest to buy it and went outside. Only later the employees noticed that the gold was missing. Though they searched for them, the women were not to be traced. The police have started investigation.
