Three held for robbing builder

Three men have been arrested for robbing a builder of Rs 1.48 lakh after stabbing him at Begumpur in outer Delhi. One of the accused is an employee of the victim, police said on Tuesday.

Amarjeet Kumar, 21, Aman Singh, 24, and Krishan Pal, 30, were held after a probe on the attack on Neeraj Singh of Rajdhani Park-based Tomar Builders on Monday.

“The incident took place when Neeraj along with his employee Amarjeet went to collect dues on a motorcycle from Mundka and Kanjhawala, and then to a builder in Begumpur to collect outstanding dues,” said B S Jaiswal, deputy commissioner of police (outer).

They collected Rs 1.48 lakh, but after driving a short distance, they were stopped by patrol staff of Aman Vihar police station to check the motorcycle’s documents.
Since Neeraj was not able to produce the registration certificate as well his driving license, the motorcycle was impounded.

They then decided to hire an autorickshaw. “As soon as they reached the road going towards Peer Baba Mazhar, two motorcycle-borne youths waylaid them and robbed the bag containing cash after stabbing Neeraj in his left thigh,” Jaiswal added.

A police control room vehicle later took Neeraj to Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital for treatment and lodged a case with Begumpur police station.

During investigation, the needle of suspicion pointed towards involvement of Amarjeet as his version of sequence of events was found to be in contradiction with that given by Neeraj.

“On being questioned repeatedly, Amarjeet confessed that he along with Aman and Krishan had planned the robbery two to three days ago. He informed Aman and Krishan about their location through mobile phone,” Jaiswal said.

Aman and Krishan were arrested at Amarjeet’s instance,  Rs 1.44 lakh and the motorcycle used during the commission of crime were recovered.
