The Rajamangalam police in the city, who have been granted 10 days custody of S Nathuram and his two other accomplices, the accused in the Kolathur burglary, by a metropolitan magistrate court in Chennai, are grilling them.
Nathuram, and his two accomplices, have confessed to having sold the gold jewellery they had looted in Chennai and Bengaluru, sources said.
“During interrogation, they admitted to having looted the jewellery in Kolathur and sold the pieces to a few people in the city and Bengaluru. They are being taken to places where they sold the gold. We are recovering the stolen property from them,” officials were quoted as saying.
A magistrate court on Tuesday granted police 10-day custody of Nathuram Jat, the prime accused in the Kolathur pawn shop heist, and two others.
The magistrate also permitted police to take the suspects to Bengaluru and Rajasthan during the probe. Jat’s father and three others, who were picked up in Rajasthan in November last year, were, however, released on bail.
The XIII Metropolitan Magistrate S Gopinath granted the 10-day police custody of and directed the Rajamangalam police to produce them before the court again on February 9.
