They are also trying to find out the source of the huge amount of cash which was robbed on Tuesday. Police is also investigating hawala money trail in the case, they said.
The sources said Rajesh Kalra, whose name had also cropped up as a bookie in Hansie Cronje match fixing case, and his partner Gurgaon-based businessman Rahul Ahuja, to whom the cash belonged, are not showing “very keen” interest in the case.
All the four employees, including Ahuja’s manager Rakesh Kumar, who were in the car at the time of the incident, are being questioned about the source of the money, they said.
In a daring daylight heist pulled off with clinical precision, unidentified armed men on Tuesday robbed five employees of a businessman of Rs 7.69 crore in south Delhi when they were driving to a bank to deposit the money.
The robbery, one of the biggest in the national capital in terms of money involved, was carried out in a matter of minutes.
Police had said around five to six armed men intercepted a Honda City car near Lajpat Nagar Metro station around 9 AM
and fled with the vehicle and Rs 7.69 crore cash.
The incident had taken place at 9:00 AM, when Rakesh Kumar, manager of businessman Ahuja, was going to Karol Bagh
along with three employees, identified as driver Subodh, Rajesh and Baijnath.
Ahuja is the business partner of Rajesh Kalra, a property dealer. Kumar and the other were travelling in Kalra’s car.
Kumar had told police that they had collected cash from Kalkaji and Greater Kailash to deposit in two separate bank
accounts in Karol Bagh.
