Victim Partap Kumar works with a mobile phone company and does cash collection work for it. He said he was going past Ghah Mandi area on his Activa scooter when three bike-borne youth waylaid him.

“They asked me to handover cash to them to which I resisted. At this, they started beating me up. They also took out a sword-like weapon and a pistol and snatched away my cash bag and fled from the spot,” he said adding that the snatchers were riding a Pulsar bike.

A similar incident had occurred yesterday when some miscreants had threatened a youth with sharp weapons and looted Rs 70,000 cash from him near V-Mart store.
