Two armed robbers looted a Flipkart courier man, who was out to deliver items to customers, on the Kulla road in the Patti sub-division on Saturday.

The robbers took away courier packs, which contained professional still cameras worth almost ₹1 lakh, and ₹50,000 in cash from the courier supplier.

“I was going to deliver a packet to one Harmanpreet Singh. But Harmanpreet rang me up and asked me to deliver the packet at a particular palace on the Kulla road. I met him on the road and delivered the packet to him. But instead of making the payment, he (Harmanpreet), who was accompanied by one of his friends, brought out a gun and put it on my head and asked me to hand over the cash I had with me,” said victim Tejinder Singh of Patti.

“I panicked and handed over two parcels containing two camera s cameras worth ₹1 lakh to him,” he said. He said that they also took away ₹ 50,000 from him, which he had collected by delivering couriers to various customers.

The police were informed of the incident and they reached the spot and started investigation. “We are examining the recordings of CCTV cameras installed at various locations. The accused will soon be arrested,” investigating officer assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Santokh Singh said.
