Default An attempted mugging @ chamundi Hill Mysore : Punto takes hits from a Dagger .

9th May 2010 , Me and my girlfriend drive out to the hill wanting to enjoy a ice evening ,
A fortnight of hectic schedule had made me numb to the core, just wanted some fresh air and a niece evening with my gal.

had spent the last 48 hours, working and driving between Bangalore & Chennai on the Linea , top of it had spent the whole afternoon cleaning up my Punto & giving her a wash .

The cold breeze was such a relief after a hard day , and somehow set me in a nice mood .

On our way we find that there are too many vehicles passing by and decided to head back to our favourite coffee joint instead .

So we take a shortcut and on the way just stopped for a minute to take in the scenery & the city lights , as it was already 7 Pm .

The road has no lights but there is very light traffic with a vehicles plying on it every 3 ~ 5 minutes .

We have barely stopped the car and are talking when i see a motorbike come from the opposite direction , midway through they switch off the lights .
I had turned off the ignition of the car , and had rolled my windows half down to let some fresh air come in .

There was something in the way they drove in and stopped that alerted my senses and i knew something was amiss .

But , i just thought that they might be “ Sri Rama Sene “ or “ Kannada Rakshana Vedike “, “ MNS “ or such idiotic saffron tinged group or moral police representatives out to harass young couple .
And was prepared to face them and give them back some sh*t.

They came and put their hands through the windscreen and tried to grab my car keys .

Alas , that idot did not know that unlike other cars , punto has a different position for the keyhole .! and he could not grab the key .
I deflected his hand and pushed it away so that he is not successful in his attempt .

The next thing he does is pull out a 8inch Dagger and puts it up to my throat .

@wind_rider, What is wrong with you people, either write what you want to say completely or don't bother posting on the forum.

What are you going to achieve by posting in parts, did the muggers take a coffee break after he pointed a dagger at your throat?(no offence).

It really irritates when people discontinue their posts abruptly. This is a well respected forum, not a soap opera with the ad breaks and abrupt endings. Please try to maintain the forum standards.

Wind_rider, that was indeed a brave move to pull over at that time, without street lights and with very low traffic. In such scenarios I wouldnt even slow down below a certain limit.

Please complete the story.. I could take some tips. Have planned a trip to chamundi hill this weekend with my fianci.

@ speedmiester : I am in office buddy , and hence the delay .
Im not trying to make a soap opera of it , just that i am in the middle of really hectic work .

Appreciate all your patience guys .
---------------------------

My girlfriend is to stunned to move or say anything , everything is happening so fast , i mean all this happened in 6 ~ 7 seconds max .!

Hey i am just an average Joe , but if i am cornered or really pissed off , i get really bloody mad ..! , i guess anybody would .

And at times like these i am more like Nicky , well in a way at least .

" You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And if you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he'll keep comin' back and back until one of you is dead " : From the movie : Casino [1995] .

So i am telling myself , dont get emotional , think logically ..!!!!

I mean there is a split second when i get something like a shiver , i am scared , i am afraid , i have my girl with me .

but the next moment i catch hold of his arm and twist it hard , i wanted the knife to fall out of his hand.

I had to get an advantage , first deflect his attack , defend yourself and get an advantage , this was what my brain was telling me .

Guys : Really sorry for the delay in completing the post , but guys i am taking a 18 day break next month [ Yeah , Doing the Leh Trip ]

So am really hard-pressed to transfer all my work and finish of my deliverables , hence am stuck in a tight spot here .

But , without further Ado , i continue .

_____________________________________________

So , once i twisted his arm , i tried to turn the ignition key and roll up the power windows , but the guy sensed my move .

Add to this that it was pitch dark outside , i really did not know what Assailant # 2 was upto .

the moment my glass comes up he is yelling to his friend " Maga Gun Thegiyo " [ Dude , pull out the gun ] .
and he says to us threateningly " Aaai , we have a gun " .

I know this was a bluff , i mean i know the probability of some punk like him having a gun , let alone his ability to procure one .

I knew that it would most probably be an Air-gun or something like that , but now i was safe .

At this point knowing that they have not been successfully , they are banging on the wind shield with the dagger, and i am cranking up my car to move front or back .

I cant reverse as it is pitch dark outside and the guys are on my side of the car blocking the view , and i have parked the car to the side of the road [ to allow other people to move easily on the road ]

Sh*T the road is too narrow to reverse , i see a opening 100 meters ahead where i can turn .

But he had to do it , i mean bang on the front wind shield & driven window glass with the dagger , luckily my Punto holds it .
When i hear my punto being attacked i become mad ...!

I slot the gear lurching the car forward and drive to the clearing , then turn it hard and turn around .

I mean , Nobody hurts my baby , My punto....!
I had blood on my Mind , absolute rage .!!!!!


By now i realize that they are on a RX 135, its too far to read the number plates , and i chase them .

Unluckily their bike starts in a kick and they already have a head start of 10 seconds .!

I chase them to the main road which has a lot of traffic , i dont know which way they turned , toward the hill or towards the city.

i stop a couple on the bike coming from city and ask them , if they saw 2 guys zooming on a RX 135 , they say nay .!

So i turn my car towards the hill , **** 5 More seconds wasted .!
Wish my girlfriends was looking out for it .!

Thanks . P.L.U.R to you too buddy .
__________________________________________________ ______________

Racing to the top of the hill there are 3 main intersections with innumerable internal roads in the hill .

I reach the khoday guest house intersection and there are 2 routes , one Is the main road which goes all the way upto the temple and the other goes to interior places , this interior road is usually used by forest dept guys to patrol .

I mean i cant take the interior road right ? its very narrow and if the block the road and trap me i am done , the second time they will do a lot of harm .

S, F, i curse myself , cant tell my GF to get out and wait there , no watchman or anybody to ask if 2 guys came by that road .

So i take the main road and go almost to the top , too many people , too many bikes .

One fits the profile , and i tail them for quite some time driving madly , nope cant get a positive id on them , ask my GF she says no she cant ID them .

8 minutes ,from the start , i slowly calm down a bit .

The adrenalin is strong i am feeling it inside me , no point trying to roam around the hill , it is pretty big , too many roads , too many people .
I decided to head back home which is only 3 kms away , and i turn to my GF & ask her is she is all right , she nods yes .

I ask her is she needs water , she says she is fine . i pull out the cell phone call 100 and narrate everything to the cops , tell them to send some patrol jeeps to that area .
Give a description of the culprits , height , build , vehicle , weapon used etc , couldn’t see their faces or the clothes they wore properly so couldn’t help them .

Remember i had switched off the ignition right .

We go home , all my cousins are there and i chat with the kids promising them a treat later and we drive off to our coffee joint .

2 smokes and a cuppachino and i am slowly feeling better , well what do you know the Police inspector calls me and asks me to come to teh station .
Yes when you call 100 they get to know the number and the location .!

My GF was shaken up ,but she was okay [ Brave lil thing ] so gave her a hug and dropped her home .

And then went to the station , they had caught hold of some suspects and i was to be there .
