Hyderabad, May 18 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Home Minister K Jana Reddy today announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh each to Mumbai and Hyderabad police for arresting the thieves in the Rs 10 crore robbery in the newly opened 'Alukkas' showroom in the Punjagutta area in the city.

Talking to newspersons, Mr Reddy said two persons identified as Vinod Ramboli Singh of Uttar Pradesh and Ajay Jawar Singh, a diamond dealer were arrested by Mumbai police in this connection and their interrogation was on.

He said they were hopeful of nabbing the third accused Srikant Singh, who is absconding, and recover the entire booty soon.

The Home Minister said the main accused Vinod, involved in 18 cases of dacoities and robberies in Mumbai at one stage was kept out from Mumbai under the city police act. He was released from a Mumbai jail on March 25 this year.

Mr Reddy said the police suspected an alliance between Vinod and Srikanth in the robbery and Ajay was a buyer of stolen items.

He went on to explain that the Hyderabad police was not in a position to give a complete picture of the robbery, until the Mumbai police shared information.

He lauded the effective coordination between the Hyderabad and Mumbai police in nabbing the accused.

The state and city police were geared up to curb the activities of organised criminals, faction groups, terrorist and extremists by increasing the number of beats and equipment.
