She explained how the incident occurred with the policeman coming to her aid.
“I was doing something inside the house this morning when the girl (apprentice) came for the keys. As soon as she opened the shop some two guys rushed on her inside and demanded she hands them her phone and money. They pulled a knife at her. “She was frightened so she ran out of the shop through the big gate and started shouting for help. She screamed the name of a police officer who is a security at a house just around the shop. The policeman came out with his gun and commanded the robbers to stop when they tried running. But they refused so he also shot both of them,” she narrated.
