New Delhi: Valuables were stolen from the car of BJP MLA from Hathras, Hari Shankar Mahor, at Apollo hospital in the national capital, police said.
Mahor’s driver was sitting alone in the car when someone came to him and pointed to Rs 100 notes lying near the car. The driver got down to lift the cash and meanwhile, a briefcase was stolen, police stated.
The driver got allured and got down to lift the cash. Meanwhile, the briefcase was stolen. They were not sure till Tuesday morning if they have left the bag somewhere in the guest house or it was stolen. So they didn’t want to file FIR on Monday,” said DCP South East, Chinmay Biswal.
“Today Rajesh Kumar Singh (Mahor’s personal assistant) came to the police station in the evening and submitted a complaint on which FIR has been registered under Section 379 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) for theft of the briefcase,” he added.
Biswal also said there was no delay in registering FIR, contrary to reports circulated on WhatsApp and by some media outlets.
