HYDERABAD: The Punjagutta police on Friday arrested six persons, including two engineering students and a security guard of Nampally MLA Mohammed Virasat Rasool Khan, in connection with a Rs 35-lakh theft from a private firm. Police recovered Rs 33 lakh from them.

The six persons, posing as Task Force police, detained an autorickshaw in which three employees of the firm were carrying Rs 35 lakh in cash and stole the money from them on April 24. Punjagutta police detective inspector Balu Chouhan said one of the employees planned the robbery in connivance with five of his friends, who included two final-year engineering students and one security guard.

The accused are: Ravi, an office assistant at Steel Exchange India Pvt Ltd and a resident of Bapu Nagar near SR Nagar; Chinna Nagesh and Pedda Nagesh, also residents of Bapu Nagar; Abhilash, a final-year B Tech student and resident of Borabanda; Khadeer, a final-year B Tech student and resident of Bapu Nagar; and Subhash, a security guard of Nampally MLA.

They detained the autorickshaw at Srinagar Colony saying they needed to check if they were carrying ganja. Pretending to be checking, they took the cash bag and fled away on bikes.

During interrogation, Ravi admitted to his role and based on his confession, police arrested the other five in Goa, where they were living in style with the stolen money.
