On the way, they were forced to take a detour from the highway due to the ongoing farmers’ protest. Google Maps led them through Ambala Cantt towards Handesra.

While they were navigating the route, two youths on a motorcycle overtook their Maruti Suzuki Swift car near a factory. Suddenly, the pillion rider hurled eggs at their vehicle, obscuring their view.

Paras said he was forced to stop the car, when the other youth brandished a pistol, demanding all their cash and jewellery.

Scared for their lives, they handed over three gold bangles, five rings, a gold chain and a gold mangal sutra. As the duo fled, the couple filed a complaint at the Handesra police station on Sunday itself.

After verifying the complaint, police registered a case under Section 379-B (snatching after preparation made for causing death, hurt or restraint in order to the committing of snatching) of the Indian Penal Code on Tuesday.

However, Handesra station house officer inspector Gurbir Singh said the victims were unable to pinpoint the location where they were robbed. Further investigation is underway to trace and arrest the robbers.
