A vendor, Munna Kumar (21), a native of Bihar and at present residing on Bahadar K Road, was robbed of Rs 45,000 by two armed persons who came on a bike. Munna said he was on the way to a bank to deposit cash. When he reached near the vegetable market, two bike-borne persons asked him for some address. Before he could tell him the address, one of them threatened him with a knife and snatched his bag containing cash. A case has been registered at the Jodhewal police station.

In another case registered at Division No. 6 police station, the complainant, Shambu Dutt, a resident of Hamirpur, Himachal Pradesh, said he worked in a company based at Focal Point.
