Angul: Masked miscreants allegedly looted Rs 10 lakh and around 800 grams of gold ornaments from a house after spraying chloroform on two women at Girang village under Nalco police limits in Angul district on Wednesday night.
According to reports, as many as four robbers wearing masks entered the house of Vikram Sahu, a NALCO employee, by breaking the window. The incident took place when Sahu was not present in the house while his two sisters were sleeping inside the house.
They looted the cash and the gold ornaments from an almirah. Hearing the movements of the miscreants, the two women woke up while one of them tried to nab one of the robbers.
The miscreants then sprayed chloroform on them and fell unconscious and later fled the spot.
A complaint in this regard has been lodged with Nalco police while efforts were on by cops to identify and apprehend the accused.
