A 25-year-old dentist on Monday night was robbed by her cook and his accomplices at her residence in South Bengaluru.
Pratibha Jain was alone at home at the time, as her parents are visiting the US. The police have launched a manhunt for the culprits.
According to reports, a little after 9:30pm, her cook Dinesh Kumar and his friends allegedly barged into the house located at Jayanagar and tied her hands and legs.
When the victim tried to raise an alarm, the men covered her mouth with tape and then ransacked her belongings.
After robbing her, the men locked the main door from the outside and fled.
According to reports, the miscreants decamped with gold and valuables worth over Rs 2 lakh.
After getting rid of the tape, Pratibha alerted her neighbours, who then broke open the door and informed the police.
The deputy commissioner of police (south) Dr Sharanappa told Bangalore Mirror, "We have got some clues on their whereabouts and are hoping to nab them at the earliest."
