An elderly couple was allegedly robbed of cash and jewellery worth several lakhs when four robbers, armed with sticks, barged into a house in the Trivedi Camp area at Mubarikpur in Dera Bassi on the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday. SI Balwinder Singh, along with a police team, visited the spot.

Mahinder Singh (75), in his complaint to the police, stated that he was sleeping in the house along with his wife and son at night. After hearing some sound around 1 am, he got up and saw four unknown persons present in the house, who had sharp weapons and sticks in their hands. Seeing him move towards them, the robbers attacked him, he said.
