Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 17

A 55-year-old woman was allegedly robbed by an auto-rickshaw driver near the backside of Jiri Mandi. The victim has been identified as Pushpa, a resident of Kharar. The robber took away her earrings, Rs10,000 cash, rings and a gold chain, after assaulting her.

The police said the incident happened last evening when the victim and her mother, Kamla, who runs a shop in Sector 38, boarded an auto-rickshaw near the roundabout of Sector 37, 38, 40 and 41. The mother of the victim alighted from the vehicle near the Sector 40-41light point.

The driver took a turn towards Jiri Mandi instead of Palsora to which the woman asked him to stop the vehicle but he did not relent. Panicked over this, she jumped off the vehicle in order to run away.

The driver stopped the vehicle, gagged the victim and started pulling her jewellery. The woman escaped the attacker by biting him.

The victim took the help of a passerby to reach Sector 39, but it was found that the area fell under the jurisdiction of the Maloya police station.

The Maloya police have registered a case against an unknown person driving an auto-rickshaw bearing Chandigarh registration number.

The police said they are scanning the CCTV footage and investigating the matter.
