I usually go through Sahakarnagar and take the newly constructed behind GKVK to reach Vidyranyapura. And whenever I travel late night I always had this fear. In fact, my parents repeatedly warn me not to use that road after sun down. Now this happens to you. I suspect the low lives will be from that Kodegehalli railway gate and surrounding area. That area is capable of producing such scums.

Default Re: Mugging in Bangalore roads - be careful! EDIT: More Incidents reported

Thanks everyone , i chalk this one up to a lucky experience and only reason i can think of for being safe is God.

My car is a KA registered and i guess i was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Things could have been away different if they had hit the car with helmets or stones or any other things. Who knows if they were carrying a weapon of anykind.

I did not get any number plates and my recgonization of bikes is very poor.

I did not have much time yesterday to check with the locals, however on passing the spot and seeking bikes parked and so many people i just drove by.

As mentioned by many, ensure the doors are locked once you start the car.
Never get out of the car.
Never fully open the window
Do a scan of your surrounding and plot a course to get the heck out of there.

@JVH good to know the cops are still patrolling
@Sachin - interesting comment about Kodigehalli Railway gate, i stay just after it

In short, anything can happen anywhere to anyone anytime. Expect the unexpected

I also stay very close to kodigehalli station near virupakshapura. I know the bakery guy near the spot where you had this bad experience. I will put a word to him and ask him to be alert and let the policemen know. Another unsafe area in this side is shantivana where they are building the married acccomodation project for army.

Bangalore's cab and tempo drivers are very unruly and this is the way they drive. Its just that we are used to it and know what to expect. For outsiders it can be a bit of a rude shock.
This is a disturbing phenomenon with the cab wallas acting utterly unruly with their new found passion for driving at speeds. The same seems to be happening in the Chennai IT stretch. Finding a decent cab driver going about his business on OMR is next to impossible. I always try to make it a point to call up the "Am i driving rash" number and report the matter, not that its gonna help in a big way but atleast i'm satisfied that the chap is answerable to someone.

Default Bangalore ATM Scam - Alert

This has happened to someone (not disclosing company name) and thereafter an advisory sent out. Here are the details, readers are advised to b cautious. Text below is verbatim sender who faced the situation.

Today, while going to my office at Outer Ring Road, I had halted my vehicle outside the Symphony Co. (near to New Horizon Engineering College) to attend to a mobile call. After about 3 minutes on the side of the road, one stout fellow in a bike came and slightly banged my stationary vehicle on my rear passenger door (RHS). He further asked me to come out of the vehicle. When I refused, he started banging on my vehicle with his hand and his blue helmet. He even tried to break my front RHS window and also tried to open the door. He could neither break the glass nor open the door since I had the security system on, which had securely closed all the doors. Sensing danger as this seemed to be stage managed, I immediately started the vehicle and proceeded further to my office which was just around 2 to 2.5 kms away.

When I was nearing Ecospace, another white Tata Indica (private taxi) came and stopped ahead of my vehicle. The driver came out (totally different person) and asked me to come out. I refused and asked him to go to the police station and complain if I had done any offense. He once again tried to break my RHS window and also tried to open the door, where he again failed (once again due to the security system in the car). He tried to pick up a stone, but could not find any other on the road. I immediately backed my car and overtook him and took a u-turn after just 150 meters into the service road and entered our office campus. During all the commotion, I could not note down the vehicle registration number.

Later on, I had lodged a complaint at the HAL Police Station along with our office Admin dept. The cops showed me one photo of a stout person, who seemed to resemble the stout person who had 1st appeared near the New Horizon College. The cops informed me that this is a known rowdy sheeter and he operates in Outer Ring Road after Marathahalli and that it was really my good luck that I had not got out of the vehicle and that the doors were securely locked, else I could have become one more victim who are made to go to ATM centers to withdraw money.

+1. For all you know, the goon is closely associated with some politicians or the local corporator and hence the cops are "scared" to take any action. Or he might be sharing the loot with the cops.

@Mayank - put your experience on the facebook page of Blore Traffic Police. You've already lodged a formal complaint so it might help to nab the scum.

For all we know he might have been successful in evading the cops all this while.

Its not me who faced this situation, someone in the org had this experience, and later Admin sent a caution email to everyone. Was not sure what to do hence posted it here.

Is it not time that the incident(s) are reported to some news channel / local daily newspaper who have the ability to bring this issue of mugging out in the open and also give wide publicity so that the concerned authorities get into action against such errant individuals.

Is it possible to get a copy of that rowdy's photo and upload here? At least the rest of us can be careful, in case we encounter this guy.

And that rowdy being already 'wanted', I guess it won't create any legal complications.
