Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had given 72 hours to the state police to nab the culprits even as state DGP Sulkhan Singh visited Mathura on Wednesday. On Monday night, six criminals attached a jewellery shop in Holigate area and shot dead jewellers Vikas Agarwal and Megh Agarwal and looted gold worth Rs four crore. The jewellers in the state were annoyed over the rising crime against the jewellers and even went for a statewide strike yesterday, downing their shutters. UNI MB SV SB 0918
