A week after the sensational heist at Hyderabad's Nizam Museum, the city police has finally nabbed the two accused who broke in and stole items worth over Rs 100 crores. The police has also managed to recover the loot.
The Hyderabad police had formed 20 teams to nab the culprits. With the help of the surveillance camera footage, the police managed to capture the accused.
The accused have been identified as Mohammad Ghouse Pasha and Mohammad Mubeen, residents of Rajendra Nagar.
Earlier this month, the accused broke into the Nizam Museum which houses valuables of the Nizam of Hyderabad, known to have been one of the richest in world.
Here, police said, the accused robbed a gold tiffin box studded with diamonds and emeralds, a gold cup-saucer set studded with rubies and diamonds, and a golden spoon.
Reports say the accused had also reached out to steal a Holy Quran kept here, which is wrapped in gold, but freaked out when the Azaan began playing in a nearby masjid, and so, fled without it.
