Yet another incident of robbery was reported in east Delhi on Wednesday. Four armed men beat a 30-year-old man and snatched his motorcycle at gunpoint in Mayur Vihar Phase-II on Wednesday. This incident comes even as Delhi has been turned into a fortress in the wake of the spiraling incidents of street crimes and the forthcoming Independence Day celebrations.

The police said Wednesday’s incident occurred when Raj Kumar Sharma was returning home after dropping his nephew to Mayur Public School at Indraprastha Extension. As soon as he reached a subway near Mayur Vihar Phase-II, around 7.45 am on Wednesday, armed robbers intercepted him.

“Four armed men who were on two motorcycles intercepted Sharma’s Pulsar motorcycle near a subway in Pandav Nagar and snatched it at gunpoint. Sharma readily gave away the motorcycle fearing he might be shot at by the robbers,” said a senior police officer.

The robbers were carrying knives and country-made pistols.

“While one of them was wearing a helmet, the other three were not wearing anything. Based on the account of Sharma, we are trying to build a sketch of the robbers. We have even showed the dossiers of the known criminals to Sharma to get some clue in the case,” said the officer.

The police said they have registered a case of robbery at the Pandav Nagar police station. “Their only target was the black Pulsar motorcycle being driven by Sharma. They did not even touch his valuables or his mobile phone,” said the officer.
