Armed miscreants rob Rs 9 lakh

A 25-year-old accountant of a fuel station in west Delhi was robbed of Rs 9 lakh while he was headed to deposit the cash at a bank near the petrol pump on Monday.

Police have been unable to identify the suspects yet.

Footage from CCTV cameras installed near the crime spot have failed to throw any light on the suspects’ identity.

Victim Kailash Kumar Jha has been employed at Bansal Petrol Pump in Nangloi for the seven years.

The money allegedly robbed from him had been collected at the petrol pump on Saturday and Sunday.

Around 10 am, Jha kept the cash in a bag and walked towards a Bank of Baroda branch right across the road.

“Just as he was crossing the road divider, two youths armed with knives approached him and asked him to hand over the bag. Even as Jha stood shocked, they pointed the knives at his abdomen and snatched the bag away and fled,” a police officer said.

The two robbers then fled towards a flyover where another person waited for them on a motorcycle.

“Jha and some other employees of the petrol pump gave a brief chase, but the robbers hopped on to that motorcycle and sped away,” the officer told Deccan Herald.
While no one could note down the motorcycle’s registration number, Jha has told po
lice that he can identify the suspects if they are paraded before him. Police have registered a robbery case and a probe is on.
