NAVI MUM­BAI: The Uran po­lice have reg­is­tered a case af­ter an uniden­ti­fied per­son on bike robbed a 44- year- old man of Rs76,700 at gun point on Tues­day evening.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the com­plainant Sa­mar Roy is a res­i­dent of Kalam­boli and he works with a lo­gis­tic com­pany in Uran. He went to that part of the city to pay the money to some trailer driv­ers of his com­pany.

“Around 7.45 pm, an unidenti- fied per­son came on a bike and stopped in front of him. That per­son in­tro­duced him­self as a po­lice­man and then asked for the bag the com­plainant was car­ry­ing with him flash­ing a pis­tol. Within a few min­utes, the cul- prit snatched the bag from the com­plainant’s hand and sped away from the spot,” said one po­lice of­fi­cer from Uran po­lice sta­tion.

Roy shouted for help, but it was too late by then. He later ap­proached the po­lice and nar­rated the in­ci­dent.

“We have reg­is­tered a case un­der sec­tion 392 (pun­ish­ment for rob­bery) and 170 ( per­son­at­ing a pub­lic ser­vant) of the In­dian Pe­nal Code (IPC). We are now in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case and hope to solve it soon,” an­other po­lice of­fi­cer said.
