A resident of the area, also said the hoodlums silently robbed the filling station without shooting so as not to attract the attention of the security men at the CP’s quarter.

The CP, however, stated that the victims had been rushed to an undisclosed hospital for proper treatment while investigations had kicked-off  to fish out the robbers.
