A car was robbed at gunpoint from an Amritsar-based jeweller by five car-borne unidentified youth in Kartarpur town, situated at Jalandhar-Amritsar highway on Thursday morning.

The victim, Sanjeev Kumar of Sai Dass Road, filed a complaint with Kartarpur police about the crime.

According to the police, Kumar was heading towards Amritsar from Delhi after a business deal in his Hyundai Verna car. When he was at Kartarpur Chowk highway, on Thursday at 6am, five youth in a silver Honda City car followed him.

Suddenly, they overtook and stopped his car. One of the miscreants came out and put the gun on the victim’s forehead.

The robbers threw him out of the car near Kishangarh and handed over Rs 500 to him as a fare to reach Amritsar. The robbers took away his laptop, two mobile phones, Rs 15,000 cash and other accessories in the car.

Kumar reached Kartarpur, called up his family and informed the police. Following this, senior police officials reached the spot and initiated investigation into the case.

The police said that an alert has been issued in the district and the nearby areas. They are hopeful that the robbers will be nabbed soon. The police claimed that they are also going through footages from CCTV cameras installed on the incident stretch.

A case under many sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered against the unidentified accused at Kartarpur police station.
