At least two armed assailants allegedly robbed a private hospital staffer of Rs 1,500 from the hospital reception in Northwest Delhi early Thursday morning. CCTV footage of the incident shows the two men, with pistols in their hands and their faces covered with cloth, talking to the staffer.
No FIR has been filed in the matter so far. “We have not received a complaint from the private hospital yet,” said DCP (Northwest) Vijayanta Arya.
The incident took place at Mahindra Park, and a police officer said that the hospital “is not interested in filing a complaint”. However, the officer added that since the video has been accessed, attempts will be made to trace the accused.
In the video, the staffer is holding what appears to be some currency notes in his hand, and can be seen opening drawers. There is a fourth person in the video too, who’s not wearing a mask or a cloth around his face, and is yet unidentified.
