IN A daredevil incident, three unidentified motorcycle-borne miscreants robbed a car at knifepoint near Six Number Stop under the Habibganj police station area on the night intervening Friday and Saturday.
The car belonged to one, Salman Sagri, resident of Chiklod Road near Jehangirabad. On Friday night he had gone to his in-laws’ place at Arera Colony and decided to stay there. He asked his driver, Owais Khan, and helper, Amit, to take the car back home.
At around 12:30 am the duo was returning in the car when the youths intercepted them saying that the silencer of the car was about to fall.
The driver did not pay heed initially but the trio overtook them and stopped the motorcycle in such a way that forced Khan to stop the car and Amit came out. Meanwhile, posing as policemen the miscreants asked them to show their papers and then entered the car and took control over it.
But after reaching Mata Mandir, one of them took out a knife and asked Khan to leave the car. The accused then sped off leaving their motorcycle.
The matter was subsequently brought to the attention of the police. The Habibganj police have registered a case of robbery. A video camera was also kept in the Indica car that bore the number MP 04/T-7700.
According to CSP Habibganj AP Singh, the motorcycle used by the trio was stolen two days back from the parking of a mosque. One of the accused was taller than average youths while the other two were short and one of them wore an ear stud, he said on the basis of complainant’s report. The Habibganj police have registered a case and are investigating the matter.
