Woman drugged, robbed in City Metro

Sumit Kumar Singh, NEW DELHI, DHNS, : 2:28 IST
For the first time, a woman was drugged and then robbed in a Metro train here in the national capital on Friday, police said.

Premjeet Singh, 47, of Rohini sector 9 in Outer Delhi was drugged and then robbed of her purse, gold bangles and chain and mutinously brought out of the station and dumped near a school at Rohini.

Premjeet boarded the train from Chandni Chowk around 3 pm after visiting Shish Ganj Gurdwara. She was returning to Rohini. “I was scared of walking or standing on an escalator. A beautiful girl wearing coat and jeans and having short hair offered help. She held my hand and helped to stand on the escalator,” Premjeet said in her complaint.

The girl befriended her and they got into the same train and she sat beside her, police said.
“I don’t know how she managed to make me unconscious. She managed to make me sniff some sedative or drug after which I fell unconscious,” she told the police. After two hours, Premjeet found herself lying outside Maxfort School in Rohini sector 23, and all her belongings stolen. She did not know how she reached there. In a semi-conscious state and with the help of security guards, she managed to call her family members. “My son Paramjeet Singh came and took me to Prasant Nursing Home at Prasant Vihar and informed the police,” she said.

After she was discharged, she told the police that the accused took away her gold bangles, necklace, rings, debit cards and some money left in the purse.
The police have registered a case of under Sections 328 (causing hurt by means of poison) and 379 (theft) with Rithala Metro police station.

“We have registered a case and verifying the details of the accused girl through CCTV footage. We are investigating the matter and are hopeful to nab the culprit very soon,” Sanjay Bhatia, additional deputy commissioner of police (railways) told Deccan Herald.
