The driver of a BMW car who had stopped to relieve himself was allegedly robbed by three men at gunpoint in northwest Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar area on Thursday night.
The alert driver, however, chased the men down and managed to catch one of them, identified as Rinku (30). Other two managed to flee.
According to the police, the incident was reported around 3 am, when Varun, who owns a BPO, and Kabir were returning from work.
The men reportedly had a bag that contained Rs 1 lakh inside the car. When they stopped near Adarsh Nagar to relieve themselves, three youths on a bike intercepted them and held them hostage at gunpoint.
They asked the men to hand over the bag, mobile and other cash to them,” a senior police officer said.
Varun in his complaint stated that he gave his gold kada, phone and the bag that had R 1 lakh to the men. The men then got on to the bike and fled. Varun and Kabir then got inside the car and started chasing the bike.
Meanwhile, Kabir also made a PCR call and informed them about the robbery. Soon after, the emergency reaction vehicle (ERV) also joined the chase.
While the accused were being chased, they allegedly opened fire at the vehicle hoping to puncture the tyres. They were, however, disbalanced, and fell on the ground.
“While the two men were chasing the bike, the accused tried to puncture their tyre and a bullet even hit the car’s engine. The bikers also fired in the air to scare the duo but they kept chasing them. Varun then managed to overtake the bike. The bikers could not speed more, lost balance and fell,”a police officer said.
While one of them was apprehended, two others managed to escape along with the bag.
“A case of robbery and attempt to murder has been registered. One person was arrested and some cartridges have been recovered from him,” said Milind Mahadeo Dumbere, DCP, northwest.
