Two bike-borne assailants allegedly snatched a gold chain from a woman police constable deployed outside Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence in North Delhi’s Civil Lines area on Monday.
Sources said a PCR van stationed outside the residence at 6, Flagstaff Road had spotted two youths on a bike.
“The PCR staff had even questioned them about what they where doing there. They told the policemen that they had come to meet the CM at his residence. Soon, they snatched the chain from the woman constable who was in civil dress and fled,” a police officer said.
Joint Commissioner of Police (Central), Sandeep Goel, confirmed that the woman is from a security unit and was deployed outside the CM’s residence.
“The incident occurred around 7.50 am on Monday when the constable was heading towards Kejriwal’s home,” a senior police officer said. He said the policewoman did not sustain any injuries.
The woman raised an alarm, but before PCR staff could react, the assailants fled towards Rajpura Road. “An FIR has been lodged at the Civil Lines police station,” DCP (North), Madhur Verma, told Newsline.
Staff of the north district police later found a CCTV footage of the accused and saw that they were not wearing helmets.
“After scanning the footage, police has now taken their photos and have started checking their profile in the crime dossier,” police sources said.
