The Islamabad police foiled an attempted robbery in CBR Town and arrested five suspects – three men and two women.
Jewellery worth a million rupees was also seized.
The women reportedly entered a flat followed by their accomplices. They held a woman captive in the flat and stole her jewellery.
The police arrived in time and arrested the suspects after a neighbour informed them.
In another incident, robbers snatched millions of rupees from a petrol pump’s cashier on Rawalpindi’s Asghar Mall Road. They opened fire at the cashier upon resistance and fled, leaving him critically injured. He was taken to a hospital.
