On Tuesday night, the owner of Gopal Sweets of Sector 8 was robbed of Rs 6.25 lakh.
Sharandeep Singh, the owner was about to sit in his Mercedes Benz at around 9.20 pm having collected the cash from his shop, when two men attacked him.
One of them threw red chilli powder into the eyes of his security guard and snatched the bag from Sharandeep. The owner, guard and another employee of the eatery chased them, but the two escaped on a Kinectic Honda scooter. Their third accomplice was already waiting for them. They fled towards the Sector 8 gurudwara side.
