V. Balakrishnan, Superintendent of police said that three of them were arrested on March 5th by the Farakka police station ad they were immediately produced in front of the additional chief judicial magistrate at Jangipur and he was the one who issued the transit warrant against them in the case.

Police has not recovered any of the looted things and also they have not yet found the one who match the finger print.

Superintendent of police, Balakrishnan said that Zia-ul-Sheik was the no.1 to be accused and he also added that he never entered inside the showroom however he waited outside the jewellery and so his finger prints is not there.
