An unknown youth forcibly took away a bicycle from a nine-year-old child at Sector 39. The victim was cycling with his friend at a park when the suspect, aged around 20, took away the bicycle.

The victim, Damanjot Singh, a Class IV student, was cycling near his house when the suspect asked him to give his bicycle.

He refused following which the suspect pushed him and took away the bicycle worth Rs11,000. He tried to chase him, but the suspect managed to escape from the spot.

He rushed back to his house and informed his family. His father Ikbal Singh said he called up the police following which a PCR vehicle and a cop, Ashok Kumar, reached the spot.

“I was shocked when Ashok Kumar started blaming my son for the incident. He started suspecting my son saying that he might have sold the bicycle to someone,” Ikbal said. He said he was surprised at the behaviour of the policeman. Ikbal submitted a complaint at the Sector 39 police station following which an investigation has been initiated.
