The Margao town police on Friday arrested six persons in connection with the case of an abduction and theft booked earlier this week. A Bhatkal-based salesman was robbed of around 2.40 lakh in cash near the Margao station road area.
The police revealed the names of those arrested as Rohit Mangalam, the prime accused, and his accomplices, Rajat Gurav, Uddhav Arlekar, Rahil Shaikh, Rahim Mohammed and Parshuram Marbutti, all residents of Margao and in the age group of 20-25 years.
Police sources said that the police were on the lookout for the accused as their movements were traced to the area in the vicinity of the crime on the day the incident took place. Mangalam was arrested after he returned to Goa on Thursday.
A car and a two-wheeler used in the crime have been seized by the police.
