The case was registered on a complaint filed by Hardeep Singh, an NRI and native of Partap Pura village, who told the police that the accused attacked him on February 26 and stole his bag containing Rs 90,000, 1,000 US dollars and 1,200 British pounds, a gold chain and three mobile phones.

He said that a land dispute was the reason behind the attack. SHO Subash Bath said that a case under Sections 120-B, 148, 149, 323, 341 and 379 of IPC had been registered.
