Broad day light robbery in Golaghat

NK HANDIQUE FROM GOLAGHAT: In yet another incident that proves police failure in broad day light, goons in Golaghat town looted a huge amount of money from a person at gunpoint in front of the police station on Wednesday.

The bizarre incident took place at around 2 in the afternoon when Puna Bora, a resident of Gomariguri was on his way back to his home after withdrawing Rs 5.65 lakh by his Maruti Van.

As his vehicle reached Magic Stand of the town in front of the police station, three armed goons halted him.

Then they broke the glass of the van and looted the entire bundle of money to be vanished immediately.

Policemen arrived in the spot only after the goons had managed to flee. Police has registered a case and investigation is going on. This has proved utter failure of the police deployed to man the town and its people.
