They took money and mobile from the victim and took off. One of them has been taken into custody by the police. Another passerby, who saw the crime being committed, can be seen running after them. The victim was in an unconscious state for some time but now he is a stable condition.
The nationwide lockdown has harmed predominantly those who were reliant on daily wages for their living, hence in a situation like this, people are suggested to stay extremely wary and shouldn’t step out from their homes as many other gangs may be eyeing to execute such crimes.
