MARGAO: In a major breakthrough, the Maina-Curtorim police arrested Rafic Khatib, a resident of Ravanfond, Margao, who is believed to be the mastermind behind the daring daylight robbery, that was reported in may at Akkamol-Ambaulim. He has been arrested under section 41 of CrPC.
Police claimed that the alleged accused Rafic was the one responsible for putting the gang together. The police also claimed that the gang involved in the Akkamol robbery was also involved in the dacoity case reported at Raia. Rafic will be handed over to the Quepem police said sources in Maina-Curtorim police station.

Well done Goan Police for arresting these robbers, while they are in custody question them about their silent leaders. Such a high profile robbery must have a leader that tales commission. Our Goan Law is to soft, we need to introduce harsher laws to deter these criminals.

If Pakle were still in Goa, these things wouldn't have seen the day of light, forget about the daylight.
