Investigations have revealed that Nandalall was sitting on a bench at a carwash, at Le Ressouvenir, Railway Embankment, ECD, when the men rode up on a motor cycle and demanded that he hand over his jewellery that he was wearing at the time. He hesitated and the pillion rider shot him to his left arm, relieved him of the jewellery and they escaped, police said.
