Sharangdharan, 55, and Mohammad Rashid Jamalullali Thangal, 25, were shot from close range by two armed assailants while they were walking towards their security van after collecting 13,000 Kuwaiti dinars (around $46214) in cash from a Sulaibiya supermarket in Kuwait’s Al Jahra city to be deposited in a bank April 25.
The gang leader, a 21-year-old stateless man, was apprehended one day after his two accomplices, a Syrian national, 18, and another stateless man, 20, were arrested by the police, the Gulf News reported Monday.
The assailants took the money and fled in a stolen car. The third accomplice hid the share of one of the suspects, according to a statement issued by the Kuwaiti interior ministry Sunday.
Both the victims, hailing from the south Indian state of Kerala, were working as security personnel with a leading private security company in Kuwait.
Sharangdharan died on the spot, while Thangal succumbed to his injuries in the Farwaniya Hospital in Kuwait City.——-IANS
