A woman was robbed of Rs 50,000 by three bicycle-carried men in the Bawana area of northwestern Delhi when she got out of a bank after withdrawing money, police said on Monday.
The woman had taken Rs 2.5 lakh from the bank and put it in a bag hanging from her shoulder. When she got out of the bank, the three bicycle-carried suspects started following her, senior police officer (outside the north) Rajiv Ranjan Singh said.
After some distance, one of the men got off the bike and tried to take the bag from the woman who resisted. During the scuffle, several bundles of banknotes fell out of the pocket.
The suspect took those bundles and ran away. About Rs 50,000 was later discovered to have been stolen, Mr Singh said, adding that a case was registered at Bawana Police Station last Wednesday.
The camera images have been analyzed and some images of one of the suspects have been obtained. Raids are underway to arrest the suspect, police added.
