'April fool robbers' strike at DBG Road yet again

A robber fooled a woman on Thursday in Nabi Karim and allegedly stole her bag from an open window of a car while she and her friend were distracted by his accomplice. The concerned police station has registered an FIR in the case.

The complainant, who had arrived in Delhi from Mauritius on business, was sitting in the passenger seat of her friend's car and had stopped at a restaurant on Deshbandhu Gupta Road.

While her friend was talking to the restaurant owner, the victim alleged that a man walked up to the car and picked up Rs 220 from the street, claiming it was hers.

The robber made a run for it as the complainant's friend was coming back. In the hubbub that followed, an accomplice simply snatched the victim's bag, which was kept on the back seat of the car, from an open window and dashed.

The bag contained Rs 18,000 in cash, the woman's passport, visa, smartphone, ATM card, and other important documents.

This is the second such robbery in Deshbandhu Gupta Road within the last five days. On April 1, three robbers used the same modus operandi to fool a car driver and dash with the owner's bag which contained Rs 50 lakh in cash and other important documents. This case was also registered at the Nabi Karim police station.

Both the robberies took place within 100m of each other on the same stretch of DBG road, according to details in the FIRs accessed by Millennium Post.

Police said that they are investigating all possible angles in the aforementioned robberies. They added that they have not ruled out the possibility of the crime being committed by the same group of robbers.
