The culprits also had a tactic to escape arrest, the police said: “The gang applied mustard oil on their bodies to evade police arrest.”
In closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage shared on social media, the shirtless culprits can be seen holding weapons and firing in the air after committing the crime.
Police further said that cases have been registered against the accused and that they will be arrested soon, as investigations are underway.
