GURUGRAM: A 28-year-old ex­ec­u­tive and his un­cle were al­legedly as­saulted and robbed of their be­long­ings at gun­point at Shankar Chowk on Fri­day night, the po­lice. The in­ci­dent took place while the ex­ec­u­tive was re­turn­ing home from Jaipur to Mukher­jee Na­gar in Delhi.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, six men were fol­low­ing them for around 20 min­utes be­fore the rob­bery. When t hey reached Shankar Chowk, the group in­ter­cepted their SUV with their Mahin­dra Xylo, held them at gun­point, snatched the car keys and bru­tally as­saulted the duo with iron rods and liquor bot­tles, and broke the side mir­ror of the car, the po­lice said.

The group then pulled the duo out of the car and snatched their mo­bile phones, wal­let and gold chains along, po­lice said.

They force­fully threw them out of the car but could not make off with the ve­hi­cle as there was traf­fic on the ex­press­way. They fled with the ex­ec­u­tive’s be­long­ings, said po­lice.

Ak­shay Singh, a res­i­dent of Mukher­jee Na­gar, who owns a Ford Eco Sports car, said he and his un­cle stopped the ve­hi­cle after they in­ter­cepted them around 9.50pm op­po­site Cy­ber Hub. He said six men ap­proached them and pointed a gun at them. One of the ac­cused climbed into the pas­sen­ger seat while one took over the wheel, and asked them to hand over all the be­long­ings.

Singh said they started thrash­ing them, caus­ing them se­vere in­juries. Singh said he had to get stitches on the head. “I was scared. They threat­ened to kill us,” Singh said.

He said he made sev­eral calls to po­lice con­trol room but could not get con­nected. He called his fam­ily after that, who lodged a com­plaint with the po­lice on­line.

A case was reg­is­tered at the Udyog Vi­har po­lice sta­tion un­der sec­tions 379B (snatch­ing) and 34 (com­mon in­ten­tion) of the In­dian Pe­nal Code and un­der the Arms Act against six sus­pects.

The ex­ec­u­tive and his un­cle drove to Delhi and got ad­mit­ted to a pri­vate hospi­tal, where they are un­der­go­ing treat­ment.

“We are try­ing to ob­tain CCTV footage from var­i­ous sources and the sus­pects will be ar­rested soon,” Shamsher Singh, as­sis­tant com­mis­sioner of po­lice (crime), said.
