An elderly couple was injured when they were attacked by two armed robbers who barged into their house in Gokulpuri, east Delhi, on Friday.

The incident was reported Friday when the two assailants knocked at the door of the house of Kharak Singh, a plastic dealer from Karol Bagh, entered the house and took his Singh’s two sons—Sudhir and Sunil—hostage.

On the first floor, the robbers assaulted the elderly couple and demanded their valuables. A crowd gathered when the family raised an alarm. The two men fled from the scene, but one was caught and handed to the police.
