SAS NA­GAR: Two uniden­ti­fied men tried to loot an em­ployee of a pri­vate tele­com com­pany by throw­ing chilly pow­der in his eyes.

The in­ci­dent took place on Fri­day af­ter­noon near the phase 7 scooter mar­ket here.

Ram told the po­lice that he was on his way to de­posit Rs 30,000 in a State Bank of Pa­tiala branch when two mo­tor­cy­cle­borne men stopped near him near the scooter mar­ket.

One of the men got down and asked him the way to Sec­tor 70. Ram said while he was di­rect­ing him the way, the man threw chilly pow­der in his eyes. He said he some­how held onto the bag con­tain­ing cash, and cried for help.

Mean­while, the ac­cused man­aged to flee the spot.

Ashish Ku­mar, the man­ager of the pri­vate firm and Ram’s em­ployer, said this was the sec­ond at­tempt to rob his em­ployee. He said a few men had tried to loot him ear­lier as well.
