Police have begun a manhunt for three people who allegedly barged into a Khetwadi house in Salim Compound, Girgaum, at around 4 pm Friday, attacked two women and fled with valuables worth lakhs of rupees and cash.
Mishri Taliba (57) and her daughter-in-law Fatima (26) were alone in the fourth-floor house when a man rang the doorbell.
He said he was a courier. "Mishri opened the door and took a parcel from the man. As she was examining it, two others appeared. The three then forced their way in and attacked the women with country-made guns. After injuring them, they ransacked the house and fled with valuables and cash," said additional commissioner of police (south region) Krishna Prakash.
Fatima, whose injuries are relatively less serious, alerted neighbours, who rushed both women to Saifee Hospital.
"We have registered a complaint under IPC sections 397 and 394 as well as section 325 of Arms Act. Four teams have been formed to investigate the case," Prakash said.
The building does not have security guards or CCTV cameras. A CCTV camera at the entrance of a travel agency on the ground floor was switched off as the agency downed shutter for the day at 3 pm.
