Caretaker ties up senior citizen in Chandigarh, flees with cash, mobile phones
A 74-year-old retired professor was robbed of Rs 15,000 in cash and two mobile phones by a caretaker at his Sector 35 residence.
In his police complaint, Shivshankar Pathak, said Jagsir Singh, who took care of his ailing brother Om Prakash Pathak, 78, stole cash and the mobile phones after tying him up with turban cloth.
Shivshankar said he had gone to Singh’s room and asked to check his belongings as he (Singh) had told the family that he will vacate the room on October 14.
Singh objected to the request and as the two argued, he tied up Shivshankar with his turban cloth and took out Rs 15,000 from his purse before going to Shivshankar’s room and fleeing with his mobile phones.
A case under Sections 342 and 382 of the Indian Penal Code has been lodged at the Sector 36 police station.
