Recently the Uttar Pradesh police garnered appreciation for their courge and presence of mind amid a situation where their weapons were not working at a crime spot but the cops dealt the situation cleverly by shouting “Thain Thain” and scaring away the burglars.
However, It seems the Delhi cops learnt no lesson from the incident. A group of Delhi policemen, who went to a robbery spot realised that they had forgotten their weapons at the office.
As a result, the four assailants fled with jewellery and cash worth Rs 15 lakhs after keeping a senior citizen couple and domestic help hostage for roughly 75 minutes.
The incident took place on Saturday at a farmhouse in South Delhi’s Sainik Farms area where four armed men allegedly barged into the farmhouse and looted cash and ornaments worth lakhs after taking the complainant’s wife and his domestic help hostage.
When the men were ransacking, one of the domestic helps somehow managed to escape and approached the Neb Sarai police station seeking help.
In response, two police personnel came along the staff, but after reaching the house, they turned back saying they had forgotten their weapons and would return with more men.
JCP, Devesh Srivastava said that three policemen have been suspended for their negligence on duty including the duty officer of Neb Sarai police station for not informing his seniors.
