Another snatching case takes violent turn in Delhi | Delhi News



NEW DELHI: A 42-year-old man was shot at and a bag carrying Rs 5 lakh snatched by four men in north Delhi’s Roop Nagar on Saturday. No arrest has been made in the case so far.
The victim, Hunny Kumar Kalra, lives in Vijay Nagar and works at a trader’s shop in Kirti Nagar. Deputy commissioner of police (north) Sagar Singh Kalsi said they received a PCR call at 6pm on Saturday about a shooting incident. A team from the local police station rushed to the spot. The victim, police said, had received injuries in his right leg. He was taken to hospital for treatment and his condition was stable, they said. “The complainant had himself made the PCR call about the incident,” an officer said.
“Inquiry revealed that the man was going to his employer’s house in Shalimar Bagh to hand over Rs 5 lakh that he had collected from a trader in Sadar Bazar,” the officer said. On the way, four men on two bikes targeted him. They tried to snatch the cash bag and, when the man resisted, one of the assailants took out a pistol and shot at him. Cops said it appeared the men had been tailing him from Sadar Bazar. The role of an insider is suspected.

One such alleged clip showed a man lying on the ground and two men kicking him. One of the assilants could be seen trying to snatch a bag even as the victim was screaming.
The victim’s family said they got to know about the incident from his colleagues. Cops are analysing CCTV footage of the incident. “We suspect that the criminals had done a recce of the spot. Raids are under way to nab the accused. We have also questioned a few people in this regard,” the officer said.
