British national Lloyd Christian McMillan, 42, has been named as the person responsible for mugging a woman of Rs 1 lakh (£1,150, $1,850) at Mapusa, Goa on Thursday afternoon.
According to police, McMillan was at a money transfer agency located at Mapusa market where another customer had withdrawn Rs 1 lakh. McMillan allegedly mugged the women at knifepoint and left with the cash.
Police sources said McMillan was a regular visitor of the money transfer agency as his mother used to send him cash. The transfers had stopped recently.
As McMillan was familiar to staff at the money transfer agency, they were able to identify him at the time of filing the complaint. Police are looking out for McMillan and further investigations are in progress.
