Chandigarh, January 9

A daylight carjacking planned by a former driver of a resident of Sector 27 ended with the arrest of five youths a day later. The police have arrested five suspects for trying to rob the 49-year-old victim of his luxury SUV (Land Rover) at knifepoint in Khuda Ali Sher on January 7.

They have been identified as Amit, 27, a Nayagaon resident; Jasbir Singh, 22, a resident of Sector 65; Sanjay, 24, a resident of Sector 12; Multan Khan, 21, a Sohana resident; and Varun, 25, a resident of Dera Bassi. A knife, an Aadhaar card, a PAN card and a car used in the crime have been recovered from them.

A case under sections 341, 392, 34 and 411 of the IPC has been registered at the Sector 11 police station.

The victim, Tarun Mahajan, who is the owner of Mahajan Tent House, Sector 30, told the police that around 4:15 pm on January 7, he was returning home in his SUV from his farm house in Khuda Ali Sher when four youths in a car waylaid him. Two persons snatched his wallet containing Rs 8,000, his Aadhaar card and the registration certificate of the vehicle at knifepoint and told him to leave the SUV. When he raised the alarm, the miscreants fled the spot.

During investigation, the police found that the vehicle used in the crime was a rental car hired by Jasbir Singh from December 31 to January 9. Subsequently, he was arrested on Friday and his interrogation led to the arrest of his four accomplices the same day.

They revealed that the robbery was hatched by Amit, who was earlier employed as a driver of the victim. The police said Amit knew about the movement of Mahajan.
