Three armed men allegedly held employees of an illegal money transaction office (hundi) at gunpoint and looted Rs 6 lakh on Saturday evening.
The owner of the company lodged a complaint with Posta police station on Sunday night. The office is located on the third floor of a building on Battala Street, Burrabazar.
The police complaint was lodged more than 30 hours after the incident.
Sources said the owner, Hitesh Patel of Ahmedabad, landed in Calcutta on Sunday and went to the police in the evening. “He claimed that the employees did not go to the police out of fear. Discrepancies were found in their statements,” an officer said.
