A trader was robbed by two motorcycle-borne armed persons near the Verka railway bridge here on May 30. However, he lodged a complaint with the police on Saturday following which an FIR was registered.

Vishal Madan, who runs a business of manufacturing hearing aid equipment, informed the police that he, along with his friend Atul Gupta, was going to Kangra in Himachal Pradesh in his car. They stopped near the railway bridge at Verka bypass for answering the nature’s call. He said two motorcycle-borne persons came to the spot and pointed a pistol at them and threatened to shoot if they didn’t hand over cash to them. They frisked their pockes and also took Rs 3,00,000 kept in the dashboard of the ar and fled away towards Vallah.
