Thirty-six-year-old Sudha Gupta got a rude shock on Sunday morning when four unidentified men robbed her of her jewellery in a Blueline bus, in front of everyone.

The men allegedly pointed a knife at her so that she would relent. She told the police that no one came to help her.

The incident happened in Vikas Puri in West Delhi around 7:30 am.

Police said Gupta boarded a Blueline bus on route number 761 between Manglapuri to Azadpur with her two children and a relative. She was on her way to a relative's house in Palam.

She told the police that the bus stopped only to let the men get off and escape. A case of robbery has been registered.

“I was standing towards the front of the bus, next to the driver, when suddenly someone tugged at my chain and pulled it,” said Gupta.

She said when she tried to protest and raise her voice to tell other passengers, one of them pointed a knife at her, asking her to keep quiet. She said the men took away her ear rings and her ring too.

The conductor told the police that six men got on the bus around 7.30 am, four of them made their way to the front and two stayed back with him.

He said the four men got off the bus near the CRPF camp in Vikaspuri.

After the incident the fellow passengers made the driver take the bus to a police station.
