A businessman was assaulted and robbed of cash and important documents outside his residence in West Delhi's Vikaspuri late on Saturday night.

The victim, Ramesh Bansal, was walking towards his home in Shankar Garden area of Vikaspuri when he was attacked by four motorcycle-borne men. The robbers first punched him on his face and then snatched his bag.

"The bag, according to Bansal contained important documents related to his business. There was not much cash in the bag on the day it was robbed. On other days, Bansal used to carry around Rs. 2 lakh cash with him. On his complaint, we have registered a case of robbery," said the police officer.

Ramesh Bansal's wife, who was inside the house at the time of the incident, claimed that the robbers fired two rounds of bullet before leaving.

Police, however, are verifying the claim.
