A gang of five masked men allegedly barged into a BBMP contractor’s house in Remco Layout near Vijayanagar on Wednesday night and made away with gold ornaments and `5 lakh after threatening the family.

Police said that the gang members entered contractor B K Vinod’s house and threatened his family with lethal weapons around 10.15 pm. They locked them up in a room on the first floor.
