A senior official of a multinational company was robbed of his car, laptop, mobile phone and cash at gunpoint in north-west Delhi in the early hours on Tuesday.
The victim Sanjeev Malhotra (42) is working as a senior executive with a Door to Home multinational company. The incident took place at around 12.30 am on Tuesday below his house in the Ashok Vihar area.
The victim was parking his Toyota Innova car below his house when the crime took place.
Two armed men forcibly entered inside the car and threatened him with dire consequences if he showed any resistance. They asked him to drive further.
Police said that after driving for some while they asked the victim to stop the car near Prembari Pul. As soon as Sanjeev stopped the car they asked him to get down from the car and sped away from the spot. In the meantime the assailants also snatched the victim's mobile phone, laptop and the little amount of cash that was available with him.
"We have registered a case and are investigating into it," said Manish Agarwal, deputy commissioner of police (north-west).
A case of robbery has been registered at the Ashok Vihar police station.
