Police are yet to detain the three non-Bhutanese who are suspected to be involved in a larceny case that occurred on April 7 in Phuentsholing.

Three days after the incident, a 35-year-old man reported to police that some miscreants had stolen Nu 400,000 from his bike’s saddle bag, which was parked near a store in Phuentsholing town.

When the police went to questions the suspects, two of the suspects had left for their residence in Jaigaon.
