Jalandhar: Ten kg of gold, worth Rs 3 crore in the international market, was looted by six bike-borne men from the office of a company sanctioning gold loans here, police said. 

One of the gang members posed as a customer and rang the doorbell of the office at Ramamandi area and as the security guard approached, asked him to open the main gate, they said.
