Three armed men on Saturday looted Rs.1.24 million from a hospital employee on his way to a bank in New Delhi, police said.
ML Raut, an employee of Batra hospital in south Delhi, along with a guard was going to the Oriental Bank of Commerce in the area when he was attacked by three motorcycle riders.
"The incident took place around noon. The bikers tried to snatch the bag carrying cash. When Raut resisted they fired in the air and fled with the money," a senior police officer said.
Nobody was injured in the firing.
