Robbers in 'Khaki' rob men on roads, two held
Delhi Police busted the gang of road robbers who wore khaki and impersonated as police officers in order to rob people in broad day light.
The accused, identified as Bharat, Pankaj and Ravi were reportedly in khaki uniform when they abducted three persons on July 15 in Mayur Vihar and later fled with their car and around 40 kg of silver ornaments worth lakhs of rupees.
After the arrest, 12.5 kg silver ornaments along with a country made pistol with two live cartridges were recovered from them.
On July 15, a Honda City car was intercepted by these khaki clad men and forced the victim on a gun point to move to a different car and abducted all three of them. After some distance, they were pushed out of the car and fled with the ornaments.
"They followed the target in two separate vehicles (Ertiga and Elantra). At first, they would intercept the targeted vehicle on the pretext of checking the documents of the vehicle. Once the occupants of the car indulged in a conversation, they forcibly entered the vehicle with fire arms and abducted the occupants along with their belongings and vehicle. After taking them to a remote place, they pushed out the occupants after robbing them off," said DCP, Dr Ram Gopal Naik.
Police received a tip-off on July 19 that the accused would come near a Gurdwara on GTK road to dispose off the booty of the robbed silver ornaments.
After the arrest, the assailants confessed to their crime. However, police is looking out to capture the remaining associates and recover the rest of the silver ornaments.
