Grain merchant robbed of Rs 4L in broad daylight in Amjhera

In a shocking incident, two motorcycle-borne miscreants snatched a bag containing cash from a grain merchant in broad daylight in the Amjhera area of Dhar district on Saturday. The victim identified as Rajkumar Rathod, was en route to Baledi village to set up a stall at the weekly haat (market) along with his companion Jitendra.

Along their routes, miscreants on motorcycles intercepted them near Mavdi Pada Phata, a few kilometres from Baledi village.
