Don-style gold theft in Kota solved within hours 23.4.2018 DNA: Money
This may not look as glamorous, but a Rs 2-crore gold heist plot in Kota had an uncanny resemblance to SRK’s Don, where Badshah Khan had a huge blueprint and a rock solid plot to decamp with gold from a foreign bank. The I-T department in Kota had conducted raids at various places between April 18 and 20. And the “quiet” and “unsuspecting” Ravindra Rajput alias Vikki (24) who is a contractual employee posted in the computer section was aware of the raids and the booty that was recovered by the I-T men as he had to enter the same on his office comp as vital data. After an aborted attempt on Friday, Rajput tied up with friends Vikas Khateek alias Ravi (22) and Ashish Sameriya (23), all residents of Suket town. More cautious and apprehensive this time, the trio on Saturday night broke into the assistant director’s (investigation) office of Income-Tax department on Rawatbhata road under Jawahar Nagar police station from the back door. Rajput was armed with the office map and knew every part of the building. ...
