2 fake cops rob Rs 1.5L at knifepoint

NEW DELHI, Dec 11, 2012, DHNS

Stop victimís car posing as policemen on picket duty

Two motorcycle-borne men, posing as police officials, stopped a car at a traffic intersection and robbed the owner of cash and valuables worth Rs 1.5 lakh, police said on Tuesday.

Sunil Sahoo, owner of an apparel factory and resident of Faridabad, was on his way  home from Noida on Saturday night when  two men on a motorcycle came in front of his Honda City car at Tughlakabad Village traffic intersection.

One of them approached him, posing as a police officer and told him that he was stopped for
not halting at the police picket few metres behind and asked him to open the door.


Victim’s statement

“I opened my car door to step outside when he pushed me inside the car at knifepoint and sat on the driving seat within no time. He threatened me of dire consequences if I didn’t hand him over the valuables with me. I complied and handed over my cash, gold chain and ring worth Rs 1.5 lakh to him,” Sadoo said in his statement to police.

Meanwhile, the other assailant on the bike — which was black and had no number plate — followed his car. They drove him for another half an hour and then left him with the car near Modi Mills in south-east Delhi, police said.

Sahoo immediately made a call at the police control room and narrated the whole incident.

“A case under section 392 (robbery) of Indian Penal Code has been registered with Pur Prahladpur police station,” said a police officer.

Police said it seemed to be the work of local ruffians. “We are probing into the matter and looking for the accused,” said the officer.
