Three first-year students in the University of Delhi got robbed of their cash and car on gunpoint after being taken hostage by three unknown robbers on Saturday night. They were later dumped into the fields near the Chandu Budhera village from where they somehow managed to reach a roadside dhabha and called their families for help. Following their complaint, an FIR has been registered at the Sector 65 police station, as reported by Times of India
The incident took place at around 10 on a Saturday night, according to the police when Ojus (one of the victims) took his friends, Hriday and Akshay for a ride in his father’s newly bought Honda City. His father is a bank employee who purchased the car just 2 months back, as revealed by him.
The trio was near Sector 69 when the three robbers, all of whom were carrying guns came in front of the car and stopped it on the main road near Hriday’s house. Holding the three friends on gun point, the robbers took away their cash and ATM cards.
“The suspects got into the car with the victims and drove them around for at least two hours. During the journey, the robbers took the victims to an ATM but were unable to withdraw the cash, due to technical faults and insufficient balance in their bank accounts,” Himanshu Garg, DCP, South Delhi, said.
The victims were threatened of stalking if they went to the police. A case against the suspects has been registered under Sections 365 (Kidnapping), 379-A (Snatching) of the IPC and Sections 25-54-59 of the Arms Act at the Sector 65 Police Station.
The victims do not remember the various locations they were taken to. “We are trying to identify the accused with the help of CCTV footage from nearby areas,” said ASI Harkesh, the investigating officer in this case.
