Mohali, October 14
Four auto-rickshaw-borne unidentified miscreants allegedly looted around Rs 4.25 lakh from a man after hitting him with sticks at Phase 7 here today.
According to sources, the incident took place around 1:30 pm when the victim, identified as Brijesh, who works at a private shop in Sector 70, was going on an Activa scooter to deposit cash belonging to his employer in a private bank at Phase 7.
The sources said the spot where the loot was committed was a stone’s throw from the Mataur police station. “The robbers, who were armed with sticks, assaulted Brijesh, following which he fell down. The miscreants then snatched the bag in which the victim was carrying the money and escaped,” said the sources.
The victim received injuries on his face and an elbow. Since the police did not get any complaint, they did not register any case in this regard.
Rajiv Kumar, SHO, Mataur police station, said they were verifying the details of the incident. —TNS
