Ghaziabad, April 23 (IANS) Five armed robbers broke into the house of a retired college principal in Indirapuram area here early Monday and decamped with cash and jewellery worth more than Rs.10 lakhs.

The five robbers belonging to a gang in Madhya Pradesh scaled the walls of the house of Dr. Sukhvir Singh, a retired principal of S.D. Post Graduate College here, and broke open the locked room of his son, who was in Pune, SSP Prashant Kumar said at a press conference.

After the robbers left, Singh informed the police control room. The police, while conducting the search of vehicles in the wee hours, noticed a suspicious person. He tried to escape when asked for credentials, but nabbed, Kumar said, adding that police recovered the jewellery looted from Singh's house.
