The daring broad day-light dacoity was committed in a jewellery shop in Katihar district today.
Police said the criminals masquerading as customers entered into the shop and held the shop owner as well as some customers hostage before looting the ornaments and cash at gun-point.
The number of criminals is said to be eight who had come on four bikes. While four entered inside, the rest kept on guarding outside.
