Attempted Robbery Foiled at Gold Shop in Kompally Hyderabad

Early Thursday morning saw an attempted robbery at a gold shop in Kompally thwarted by the quick actions of the shopkeeper, leading to a dramatic escape by the suspects. According to police reports, two men disguised as customers, one of them wearing a burkha, entered the shop located on Medchal road.

The robbers initially posed as legitimate customers but quickly turned aggressive when one of them brandished a knife, threatening the shopkeeper to pack jewellery boxes into a bag. Sensing danger, the shopkeeper reacted swiftly by leaping over the counter and raising an alarm, prompting the would-be thieves to flee.

Despite a worker’s attempt to hinder their escape by throwing a chair, the duo managed to evade capture, speeding away on a motorcycle parked outside. While the shopkeeper claimed that some gold ornaments were taken during the incident, the exact value is yet to be determined.
