    Robbers winning policemen are sleeping. All the time robbed thieves are wearing helmets & no clues. The best thing to stop this robbers are ban wearing helmets now. This will effect innocent public but no choice have to do it right now.

    As to my experience, it was not wise to close the gate or door once the robbers had entered into any premises. They will be violent and many could have been killed when they come to know that their escape route has been closed. Am I correct?

    What is the role of the guy in the red T-shirt who casually strolls in during the so-called robbery. He is not the least bit concerned about the goings-on. This looks like a staged drama, possibly for insurance purposes.

    One chap is actually allowed to leave! Check 2:05 on video. Could he not have called the cops?
