While the gang was working as security guard in Banashankari, one of the accused, Bheem discovered a house whose members were leaving for Tirupathi on December 13th. They planned to rob the house the next day. They carefully disconnected the power supply to avoid appearing in the CCTV cameras but failed to notice that the house had UPS which got activated soon the power went and the entire robbery was recorded in the CCTV cameras.
