Highway robbery

leave a comment »

NDTV reports:

A group of men allegedly armed with chains, iron rods and hockey sticks assaulted staff and looted nearly two lakh from a toll booth near Delhi on Monday night.

Shortly after 8 pm on Monday, two bikers assaulted workers at the toll plaza for commercial vehicles. Around 30 minutes later, around a dozen men arrived on a bike and in a black Scorpio with a beacon and a politician’s poster on it. They beat up the attendants, ransacked the glass booth, and grabbed Rs. 1.85 lakh in cash and left.

“They were there for a long time, we called the police immediately but they came late. These men had belts, hockey, knuckles, chains and rods,” said Ravi, a worker.

The Gurgaon police, who have been accused of not responding promptly to the SOS from the toll plaza, are yet to comment on the act of brazen lawlessness.

You might begin to wonder where the Indian state has disappeared.
