Jewellery shop looted in Shawshank Redemption-style
Like Tim Robbins dug a hole in his cell to escape from prison in the movie Shawshank Redemption, thieves in Bhiwandi area of Maharashtra dug a hole in a jewellery shop in a busy market, and fled away with 2.5 kg gold when the owner had closed for the lunch break.

A JEWELLERY shop owner in Bhiwandi area of Mumbai met with the shock of a lifetime after he was robbed of all his jewellery in broad daylight. As shown in this shocking footage, Shankarlal Rajpurohit's shop was looted as thieves, like a jailbreak tunnel of a Hollywood movie, dug a big hole in one of the shop walls during lunch break.

“I don't know how this thing happened. I closed my shop for lunch at around 1 or 1:30pm and as soon as I opened it again at 3:30, everything there was scattered and all my 2.5 kg gold was gone,” Mr Rajpurohit told NNIS.

Mr Rajpurohit would religiously lock the gold in a safe before closing down every evening but during the lunch break he would just lock the main door of the shop. “I would put the gold on display only in the morning but during lunch time I would just lock the shop,” Mr Rajpurohit added.

When asked if this hole was made during the lunch or it over a matter of few days, Mr Rajpurohit, reacted angrily said: “I have never seen such a hole in the wall. Why I should I notice? I don't know what is happening behind my back.”

The shop is located in a busy market and even police and passersby are shocked to see the hole through which thieves have apparently laid their hands on the gold.
