Thane (Maharashtra), July 1: Moving swiftly, the Thane police have cracked the Rs 9.16 crore armed dacoity of a cash van on June 28 by nabbing six persons and recovering Rs 3.12 crore from them, a top officer said here on Friday.

Making the announcement at a joint press conference, Maharashtra Director General of Police Praveen Dixit and Thane Police Commissioner Parambir Singh said it was "an insider job" in which an employee and a former staffer were involved in the two-month long planning and final execution of the heist here on Tuesday.


Among the six persons nabbed are four who were part of the actual dacoity that day at the Thane office of the Vadodara-based Checkmate Services Pvt Ltd.

"Thane Police Commissioner Parambir Singh and the police have done a good job by solving the case within two days," Dixit said.
