Trader carjacked, dumped at roadside

New Delhi:Dec 8, 2012 DH News Service

 A 45-year-old businessman was allegedly carjacked by two armed men when his vehicle was parked outside a liquor shop in south-west Delhi’s Chhawla, police said on Saturday.

According to police, Mahipal Singh Rana, a resident of Palam Vihar in Gurgaon, was on his way from home to Ladwa grain market in a Maruti Swift car when the incident took place on Thursday.

The businessman has a wholesale business at the market in Haryana’s Kurukshetra district.


“The chain of events began after he stopped outside a wine shop in Deenpur to buy a bottle of alcohol at around 6.15 pm,” a senior police officer said.

Intercepted

Rana bought a bottle and was about to drive away, when he was intercepted by a man in his mid-twenties.

Rana claims that the unidentified man pushed him off the driver’s seat and forced him to shift to the passenger seat.

“The man then sat on the driver’s seat and immediately his accomplice joined him. One of them sat next to Rana, while the second man drove the car,” the officer added.

Sources said they were carrying a country-made pistol and a knife. The man sitting next to the businessman also grabbed his head from behind and forced him to duck under the passenger seat.

Threatened to kill

The two then sped away with the vehicle towards Jhatikara Road and threatened to kill Rana if he tried to raise alarm.

One of the men then searched the car and found a bag containing his passport, voter ID card, cheque books and documents of the car and other property.

They drove for an hour before leaving him at a deserted place in Paprawat.
The men also took away Rana’s two mobile phones and Rs 9,000 cash. 

Rana later sought help from a passerby and informed Chhawla police station.
A case of kidnapping and theft has been registered against unidentified persons on the basis of Rana’s statement.
