Kotri CO Shyam Sundar Vishnoi told that there is Raimal Budhamal petrol pump on Jahazpur Road in Kotri town. Mahendra Gurjar, an employee of this pump, had gone out on a bike on Tuesday afternoon carrying the pump’s collection of Rs 5 lakh 10 thousand in a bag. He had to deposit this money in the SBI bank of the town. Mahendra had just reached near Kotri bus stand when two miscreants riding a Splendor bike who came from behind hit his bike. Mahendra fell along with the bike. Meanwhile, the miscreants snatched the bag full of money from Mahendra’s hand and ran away on a bike towards Jaswantpura-Malikheda.
