Snatchers strike, yet again: Shoot at, rob businessman of Rs 2 lakh in Delhi’s Roop Nagar | Delhi News



NEW DELHI: Criminals continue to run amok on the streets of the city. If a businessman was targeted by snatchers in north Delhi’s Roop Nagar two days ago, another businessman was shot at by snatchers, this time in Shastri Nagar.
The incident was captured on a CCTV camera and the footage went viral on social media on Tuesday.
The incident took place around 6pm on Monday when the businessman was heading home after shutting shop. The snatcher on a motorcycle fired at the victim, who has a money exchange business, but he narrowly escaped with his life when the bullet only grazed him. The victim was taken to hospital for treatment and medical examination.
Police said that the criminals fled with around Rs 2 lakh. The cops are using the bike’s registration number to trace the culprits whose faces were obscured by helmets. An FIR has been registered and the Crime Branch and Special Cell have been asked to investigate.
It is being probed if this snatching was also the handiwork of assailants who targeted a businessman in Roop Nagar two days ago. Police are yet to make a breakthrough in that case but have recovered CCTV footage showing the brazenness of the criminals. The footage shows the businessman, identified as Bunny Kalra, not only being robbed and shot but also pinned to the ground and kicked several times by his attackers. They do this in full view of dozens of people, who can be seen on the video stopping to watch the drama but not intervening, obviously cowed by the threats of the criminals.
The 42-year-old victim was shot in his right leg and robbed of Rs 5 lakh by four men. Kalra was carrying the cash belonging to his employer. According to police, the incident took place on Saturday evening when Kalra, who works at a plastic granules shop in Kirti Nagar, was returning to his office on his motorcycle after collecting payment from a customer.
The cops are also yet to make any arrests in the case of a cash van robbery reported a few days ago in Wazirabad in north Delhi. Delhi Police has issued a sketch of the accused in the incident that was prepared on the basis of CCTV footage and details of his appearance given by the other staffers.
Police have recovered CCTV footage showing the assailant threatening the cash van custodian, Udaypal Singh, 55, with a weapon and then running away with the bag full of cash. The footage shows, on being threatened, the frightened guard handing over the bag with cash to the attacker. The assailants still shot dead Singh, who was on duty in the van belonging to the CMS company.
