It seems that the robbers simply have no fear of the law in the tricity and are coming up with new formulas to mask their identity.

Within hours of a judge's Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) being stolen from outside her house in Sector 40, Chandigarh, on Thursday night it was used by three miscreants to rob a Haryana Roadways bus conductor around 5:30 am in Sector 5, Panchkula. The judge, Judicial Magistrate 1st Class (JMIC) of Chandigarh district courts, Harpreet Kaur, lodged a missing complaint of the SUV, Tata Safari (CH04-3191) on Friday morning at the Sector-39 police station.

The victim Mukesh Kumar, who is a resident of Haripur village in Panchkula, was going for his duty to Sector 5 bus stand around 5:30 am on foot. The three miscreants alighted from the SUV and hit Kumar with a stick on his back and the other snatched the bag. The conductor managed to note down the number of the SUV. His bag contained bus tickets and `6,500 in cash. Another man Rahul was also robbed of his belongings by the miscreants.

The police was informed and Sector 2 police post in-charge ASI Sushil Kumar and SHO Sector 5 inspector Manish Kumar reached the spot.

"A has been registered under section 394 (for voluntarily causing hurt while committing robbery) of the IPC. Investigations are on," said SHO of sector 5 police station, inspector Manish Kumar.
