Hyderabad: The sensational robbery at the Nizam’s Museum in Hyderabad has been solved within a week of a Hollywood-style heist by two men who escaped to Mumbai and lived it up in a luxury hotel before being tracked down.
The arrests were made jointly by the South Zone police and the Task Force. The stolen valuables were also recovered from them.
Two thieves broke into the museum last week. The bike borne criminals who wore masks gained entry through the ventilator and decamped with the valuables from the showcase.
A four-kg gold tiffin box studded with diamonds, rubies and emeralds – arguably the star of their rich haul – a gold cup studded with rubies and emeralds, a saucer, a spoon and a tray have all been found from the duo.
The three-tier tiffin box worth several crores may not have been used by the Nizam, but one of the thieves used it every day to have food, revealed the Hyderabad police.
