New Delhi: A 20-year-old journalism student from Assam was robbed of cash and other valuables by three men who forcefully entered the premises of her PG facility in south Delhi’s Vasant Kunj area and threatened her room mates saying that they would come back for more money, police said today.
The incident has triggered panic among people from the northeast community living in the area. One of the girls living in the PG facility was so traumatised that she left for her hometown today.
Delhi Social Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar said the city government was looking into the issue and that police was investigating it thoroughly.
The incident took place around 10.15 AM yesterday when three girls, all mass communication students of Tezpur Central University, were present in the paying guest facility at Kishangarh locality of Vasant Kunj and three men approached them on the pretext of donation, a senior official said.
When they agreed and loosened the grip over the bolt of the door, the men forcefully entered into the flat and snatched the purse of one of them. They made away with cash Rs 2,000.
“As they left, they threatened us saying they would come again and asked us to keep more cash ready. We called up the police immediately and a police team came to investigate the matter,” the complainant said.
All three girls are pursuing internship with leading media houses in Delhi-NCR. .
