“They had come prepared. They knew exactly which shops to target. My shop has very strong shutters, but the thieves were able to break it open in about seven minutes,” Soni said.
Most of the suspects appeared to have masked themselves with a cloth or anti-pollution masks. However, there were at least two suspects who were unmasked. They seemed aware of the presence of CCTV cameras.
