Bangalore: Five persons entered the house of Vikram, an investment banker, in Nandini Layout here, and robbed the family of gold and cash on Monday.
According to the police, the gang pressed the calling bell in a manner similar to the way Mr. Vikram does. Thinking that it was her husband, Mr. Vikram's wife Deepu opened the door.
The intruders, who included women, then asked for Mr. Vikram's partner Ramesh and forced their way into the house.
They then locked Ms. Deepu and her mother-in-law Rajalakshmi in a room and then went straight to Ms. Rajalakshmi's room on the first floor, opened a cupboard and took away the cash and gold ornaments.
“It looks like an act done by those who know about the house. We have got fingerprints,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police H.S. Revanna.
A businessman was kidnapped from his house in Dollar Colony and set free a few hours later near Dharmapuri in Tamil Nadu on Monday.
According to the police, six men accosted Satish Chandra (40) as he set out on his morning walk.
The police said that his domestic help saw them forcing him into a vehicle at gunpoint.
Even as the police began their investigation, Mr. Chandra called to say he was abandoned at a place near Dharmapuri.
A police team was sent to Dharmapuri.
“We will be questioning Mr. Chandra and decide about further action,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police S.N. Sidramappa.
A garage owner was murdered at Malleshpalya near Byappanahalli here in the early hours of Monday.

The attackers dumped the body in front of his house and escaped in a four-wheeler, said the police, who suspected the motive to be an affair.
