Two uniden­ti­fied men threat­ened the em­ploy­ees of a restau­rant in Malviya Na­gar on Fri­day evening in an at­tempt to loot the money kept in the cash box, po­lice said.

The in­ci­dent was caught in CCTV cam­eras of the restau­rant and the po­lice are us­ing the footage to iden­tify the mis­cre­ants, said Di­nesh Ku­mar, a sub-in­spec­tor with the Jawa­har Cir­cle po­lice sta­tion, on Satur­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the in­ci­dent took place around 7pm on Fri­day when two bike-borne men en­tered the restau­rant re­port­edly in an ine­bri­ated state. “One of the men walked up to the counter and told my brother that he wanted a burger or the money kept in­side the cash box,” said Suresh Sharma, the restau­rant owner. The ac­cused al­legedly tried to fire the re­volver. HTC
