Three men waylaid the cashier of a petrol pump and looted Rs 9.5 from him at gunpoint. The incident was reported from Hari Nagar near Naharpur village, Gurgaon, on Monday.
According to police, Arvind, who is cashier at Pace City Auto petrol pump located on NH-8, was on his way to HDFC bank in Sector 10A to deposit the cash.
He told police that three men on a motorcycle waylaid him enroute. They stole the cash from him at gunpoint and then fled after firing shots in the air.
“The incident took place at about 10 in the morning. Arvind was on his way to HDFC bank in Sector 10A when the robbery took place,” Hardeep Singh Hooda, SHO of Kherki Daula police station, said.
Police said the cash was the petrol pump’s collection over Saturday and Sunday.
The cash could not be deposited at the bank earlier as it was a weekend.
According to the SHO, the cashier told him that when he was on his way to the bank someone called out to him from his rear. “There were three people on a motorcycle, the numberplate was covered with a white cloth. One held the cashier at gunpoint, the other snatched the cash bag from him while the third waited on the motorbike,” Hooda said.
Police have filed a case under sections 392 and 397 of IPC and section 25/54/59 under the Arms Act. “An FIR has been lodged and further investigation is on to find out if the robbery was planned,” the SHO said.
