An unidentified person today robbed a realtor of Rs.12 lakh when he was about to enter his car in Karamadai.
Palanisamy (59), hailing from Mettupalayam, was opening the door to enter his car, after withdrawing Rs.12 lakh from a bank in Karamadai, when a person suddenly came from behind and snatched the bag containing the money, police said.
Even before Palanisamy could react, the thief escaped with his accomplice, who was waiting on a motorcycle.
Police are viewing the CCTV footage kept in the bank, to find out whether any person was closely watching Palanisamy’s movement, they said.
