Two employees of a garment trader were allegedly robbed of Rs 65 lakh at gunpoint by unidentified men in the Kailash Nagar area of East Delhi’s Gandhi Nagar area on Monday morning.
Sources said that the incident took place at 11 am in the Kailash Nagar area near a police chowki when three unidentified bike-borne assailants came and intercepted the two employees who were riding on their scooty after collecting payments.
