Police launched a massive hunt for the robbers who looted a jewellery store in Wafi City in a mere one minute and 45 seconds.

A Dubai police official said no arrest has been made in the Graff jewellery store robbery on Sunday night, believed to be the first of its kind in the city. Gulf News, however, learnt that the faces of the suspects have been identified. Police are estimating the value of the diamonds stolen from the store, a Bin Hendi outlet.

"The case is with police. We have no more information," a Bin Hendi official told Gulf News. He could not estimate the company's losses. Officials close to the investigation put the value of the stolen diamonds to be more than Dh50 million.

Eisa Adam Ebrahim, Dubai Shopping Malls Group head and BurJuman general manager, said malls must upgrade their security to match the growing "sophistication" of criminals. Gold traders said while they were shocked at the robbery, Dubai remained a haven for trade.
