Man abducted, robbed by traffic policemen in moving car
Subash Pahuja, a resident of Janakpuri, had a horrifying experience when he was abducted in his own car and robbed of his money by none other than men in uniform at a check post in North-West Delhi.
The incident happened when Pahuja, the complainant, was going to Wazirpur in his car. When he reached Adarsh Nagar Metro station he was stopped by Traffic Police personnel who were checking vehicles. Subash was challaned and asked to pay the money.
As the complainant opened his dash board to take out the money, the constables Manoj and Pradeep saw two bundles of demonetised currency in the Rs 500 denomination. After spotting such a huge amount, they got into the victim’s car and threatened to seize it if he raised objections. Subash was carrying Rs 1 lakh in Rs 500 denomination and Rs 20,000 in Rs 100 denomination for his nephew’s marriage.
Both the constables were joined by another Head Constable Suresh Chand who then asked the two to accompany the complainant to a nearby location, some kilometres away.
The two constables then abducted the victim in his own car and forced him to drive towards ITO. The two snatched his mobile phone and threw away the SIM card. The policemen turned abductors and roamed around in the victim’s car for two hours and robbed him of the entire amount.
When Subash returned to Adarsh Nagar, immensely distraught and distressed, he found the accused policemen. The cops, however, claim that the complainant’s money was returned to him by the policemen.
“An FIR has been registered and the accused have been sent to Traffic Lines. However, they haven’t reported there and we are looking for them,” said Milind Dumbre, DCP North-West Delhi.
