A 40-year-old Delhi-based businessman was robbed of Rs 70 lakh at gunpoint in broad daylight in the national capital. The incident took place on Thursday when businessman – Kashish Bansal, was on the way to Gurgaon from his home in Rohini. The entire incident was captured on the mobile phone by a passer-by. Three men on a motorcycle reportedly stopped Bansal on a flyover in west Delhi’s Naraina. The trio took Rs 70 lakh from the dicky of his car.
A case has been registered and further investigation is underway. According to police, the trio accused are expected to be known to the victim as they know where the money was kept.
According to news agency ANI, the video clip captured by passers-by shows scenes just outside white SUV which was stopped in the middle of the flyover.
