Three armed men took away the car of the owner of a local drug store, Arpan Medical, at gunpoint at Mullanpur Dakha last night. The victim had gone to attend the marriage of Cabinet minister BB Ashu’s nephew and son of Congress councillor Narinder Kala.
The drug store owner, Ravi said: “Yesterday around 11.30 pm, after attending the marriage function at a marriage palace on the Ludhiana-Mullanpur highway, he was walking towards his Brezza parked opposite the venue. The moment he got in, three masked men arrived there. They threw him out of the car at gunpoint and took away the vehicle.
He said he was so panicked that he couldn’t see on which vehicle the carjackers had come. He immediately informed the police and a team reached the spot. The police examined several CCTV cameras but failed to get any clue about the carjackers.
The investigating officer, SI Jaswinder Singh, from the Dakha police station, said CCTV cameras on the highway were being examined to get some clue about the carjackers. An alert had been sounded in the region, he added.
