A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader was robbed on the streets of Delhi on Wednesday while he was relishing street food. Former Delhi-BJP general secretary and vice-president Vijay Jolly had left his car at Saket in South Delhi to have ‘golgappas’ at a nearby street outlet, when some miscreants broke the rear side window of his car. The robbers then decamped with his handbag containing a laptop, digital camera and a few important documents kept in it, reports news agency PTI quoting police. The BJP leader has filed a complaint at Saket police station. The police have registered a case in the matter and started a probe. The robbers are yet to be identified.
According to Jolly, he was passing by Lado Sarai area when he noticed a well-known street food stall and thought to stop to have some golgappa. While the BJP leader was eating the snack, he saw the right window at the back of his car was smashed. Reaching to the car, Jolly found his laptop, digital camera, flight tickets to Cambodia and some official documents missing, reports InUth.

Jolly quickly enquired about the robbers and came to know that they were two young men who came on a bike, the report said, adding, the bike did not have a registered number plate.
Speaking to media after the robbery, Jolly condemned the act and said he was “very shocked”. The saffron party leader showed concern over the issue and said that if an ex-MLA could be robbed like this, imagine the condition of the common people. Jolly further raised concern over increasing activities of Motorcycle-bourne gangs. He said these gangs are spreading terror in South Delhi region. To ensure the safety of people from all these activities, the police should take some strict actions, he added.
As the case has been registered, the police are scanning CCTV footage from the area to identify the culprits.
