At around 2 am, Abhishek had come out of his house and was talking over the phone with his friend. All of a sudden, two men on a bike stopped in front of him. The pillion rider approached him with a knife and demanded his mobile phone and his wallet and fled the spot. Abhishek who did not dare to resist the robbery bid as the robbers had sharp knives, approached Madiwala police and lodged a complaint. The police have registered a case and are investigating. Madiwala and surrounding areas has a considerable population of IT employees and it is always vulnerable to robberies. Most of these crimes are committed by small-time rowdies who target people returning late from their offices at night.
The police too have increased night patrolling in the Madiwala and surrounding areas due to a large number of robbery complaints.
