read this horrifying story in Bangalore mirror today

be careful guys

Waylaid robbed stripped - Bangalore Mirror,Bangalore Mirror

Incidents of highway thieves waylaying unsuspecting motorists are now all too common in the city.


The robbers’ modus operandi is to stop a motorist at a lonely spot, falsely accuse their target of causing injury to one of their number and then demand ‘compensation’ – sometimes at knife point.
A step further

Anup, a resident of Koramangala, was waylaid and robbed of cash and valuables, but the thieves added insult to injury by stripping him. They then clicked his nude pictures on their mobiles and blackmailed him into paying Rs 90,000 before making off with his car.

The incident has left Anup stunned and embarrassed. An employee of a private firm, Anup was driving towards Sarjapur on Friday when a girl suddenly jumped in front of his car near Lemon Grass Hotel on Outer Ring Road at around 3.30 pm. When Anup stopped the car, four persons surrounded him and accused him of hitting the girl. They boarded the car, forcing Anup to take the girl to a hospital.

At Marathalli, the gang snatched his laptop, mobile phone and gold jewellery. They then drove to a secluded spot, where they beat and stripped him. They took his nude pictures on their mobile phone and threatened to publicise them if he did not cough up Rs 2 lakh. A battered Anup pleaded with the thieves to let him go. They agreed to free him if he gave them Rs 90,000.

The miscreants forced Anup to summon his friend to Marathalli with the ransom amount. Once they laid hands on the money, the miscreants dropped Anup near Bellandur and drove off in his car. Before doing so, they gave him their ‘contact’ number and warned him not to go to the police.

The victim was initially reluctant to report the matter, but filed a complaint with the HSR Layout police after being assured police protection.
Not the first time

Since the past three months, a group of bike-borne muggers has been targeting motorists on lonely stretches of the Outer Ring Road, especially between Bellandur and Marathalli, Iblur and Kaikondrahalli, and Kaikondrahalli and Wipro. They are bold enough to strike victims in broad daylight. Police say they strike only once or twice in a month.

Anup pleaded with the thieves to let him go. They agreed to free him only if he gave them Rs 90,000

Cops on alert
The HSR Layout police have sent e-mail alerts to residents and IT companies in the area. A four-man patrol squad has been formed to nab the gang. The mobile numbers of the officers/beat constables are:
Inspector Rajesh — 9448448833
Sub-Inspector Mirza Ali Raza — 9972833003
Ashok (towards Marathalli) — 9902660986 (on Cheetah)
Vijayamurthy (towards Iblur) — 9980834703 (on Cheetah)
Manjunath — 9845668681 (crime squad)
Ravindranath — 9980399551 (crime squad)

This is really scary stuff. Guess I'm not stopping for anyone on the roads from now on, whatever happens. It is better to go directly to the police station and report it if you hit someone, rather than getting mugged by these guys.

I hope this statement does not mean that the Police are not really bothered as the number of incidents arent large enough to spoil their "perfect" record.

@ms001: Yes this was really a bad one.
Now would this actually be 330pm in the afternoon or was it 330am in the wee hours?
I know the article mentions broad daylight etc but this particular stretch of road is a highly populated traffic dense area under normal circumstances.
hence Im finding it a bit difficult to appreciate the 330pm time given.

The report in the paper isn't fully correct. It happened at 4.30 in the evening.
The victim is a friend. Had posted the same @ http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/street...l-bad-126.html.

The car is still with those morons as of now.

thats bad indeed Jeeva. is the vehicle a local registered one or an out of town regn? Sometimes these vile chaps consider out of town reg cars as relatively "soft targets".
430pm on Friday was broad daylight!! This is really bad show indeed.

What is upsetting is the amount of taxes that the government collects and in return they dont even seem to be able to provide us with basic safety, law and order, proper road surfaces and street lighting that works!
what are the so-called wonderful ministers and bureaucrats doing?

It might be worth writing a letter on this subject to the Home Minister in the hope that something may be done towards restitution.

To rub salt in the wound, there were these ads on TV during CWG about " time pe tax baro, behisaab laabh pao.. !"(pay taxes on time and reap unlimited benefits.)

If we leave out the taxpayer out of the equation - I think everybody else has opportunity to reap unlimited benefits.

Sorry to go OT. Mods - if inappropriate, please delete/scrap.

@Shankar Balan, The car was Bangalore registered Maruti Esteem.
The thugs had called him up after the incident, to meet at a common place to barter the car and the money. One would be like "***??" if I had to name the place where they wanted to meet up. This has become like some up-market business deal.

This is beyond belief! Jeeva, has your friend informed the police about this new call? They should be able to trace the call and get at them. Or at least try and nab them when they come to barter. Ask your friend to stop at nothing if the local police doesn't respond: go to the Commissioner's office on infantry road and lodge a complaint directly. I feel they are emboldened by the fact that they have managed to choke out 90k from your friend already; and they are getting greedy. If the police helps just a little bit here and does 10% of what they are expected to do, these people should be caught.

Scary stuff...What a pathetic place Bangalore has already become!!!

On a lighter note, Since the Bangalore police has proven their inefficiency time and again, the government need to issue gun licenses to people above a certain education and income for self protection...lol

Niranjanrvce, Yeah, right after he was thrown out of the car, the cops are in the loop.
The cops have some evident info about the gang, from the calls they had made. Hope, the perpetrators are nabbed soon.

Jeeva, in that case my advice would be to not post anything else on this until this gets resolved. Not that I expect those crooks to be reading team-bhp but it still isn't a chance worth taking; you wouldn't want somebody tipping them off.

Here's hoping this ends well and sanity prevails. It's hard to believe this is the same bangalore I grew up in.

Where was this friend then? did he just come, give the money and go back? why did he not bring the cops with him? and these guys gave him their cell number????

The victim was initially reluctant to report the matter, but filed a complaint with the HSR Layout police after being assured police protection. Police protection? so now he has a cop travelling with him evrywhere? Is he a witness in a high profile case? police protection is not given in such cases......I have practiced criminal law for a long enough time to know this for a fact
