A case under Section 397 (theft, or dacoity, with attempted death or serious injury) and 34 of the Indian Penal Code was registered in Delhi Cantt Police Station and the investigation was underway, the officer said.
In the video, the driver parks his white Fortuner car near the spot where three people arrived on a motorcycle.
When SUV owner Rahul gets out of the vehicle, a man wearing a red upper pulls a gun from his pocket and threatens him. Two other suspects who wield weapons also arrived and all three escaped with the car from the scene.
