The Ahmedabad Crime Branch has nabbed five people on their way to execute a crime in Vapi. The cops have also recovered a few country-made pistols, cartridges, mobile phones, and Rs12,000 from them.
The Ahmedabad Crime Branch officials nabbed Arif Sheikh and four others near Balaji Agora Mall. The loot plan was the brainchild of one Altaf Mansuri. Sheikh is a resident of Sarkhej while Mansuri belongs to Vapi.
Cops said they had received a tip-off that the five were on their way to loot an office of a businessman in Vapi and extort money from him.
Police said Masuri planned to loot the office of his boss, one Saeed Sheikh, who was in the construction business. Media reports said Mansuri convinced others that his boss had Rs50 crore lying around in his office.
The others who were arrested were identified as Mohammed Salim, Rajesh Rathod, Vicki Jadeja, and Mohammed Faizan.
