A group of four to five thieves held a family and their friends at gunpoint and stole from them an SUV, gold ornaments, cash and four mobile phones at a farmhouse in the early hours of Sunday, the police said. The accused then locked all the six victims in a room before escaping.

An FIR has been registered at Bhondsi Police Station under section 379B (snatching), 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC and several sections of Arms Act. The accused are yet to be identified or arrested.
Around 12.05 am on Sunday, Jitendra Thakran, 45, a property dealer, his wife, two friends and two servants were at the farmhouse, when four to five men barged into the house, police said.
Thakran, a resident of sector 46, who has been renting the farm for nine years, said that the accused assualted them and tied up one of his friends with a muffler.
He told police that the accused then snatched his wallet which had around Rs45,000 and also a key to his SUV, which was parked on the farmhouse’s porch. He said that his wallet had some important documents as well.
