18-year-old collegian robbed at knifepoint
An 18-year-old college student was robbed by a trio who offered to drop him at the Pune railway station from Gadital in Hadapsar on Sunday night at around 11pm
Koregaon Park police said based on the complaint filed by Shashikant Ajay Sharma, an unidentified auto driver and his accomplices were booked for the robbery.
API D V Tambe said, “Sharma is studying in the MIT College in Loni and was standing at Gadital in Hadapsar. The suspects, who were travelling in an auto, approached Sharma and offered to drop him at Pune railway station, just like any other passenger is approached by a share-auto. At that time, there were two youths inside the rickshaw. After the auto reached Sadhu Vaswani Bridge near Koregaon Park, the suspects stopped the auto and threatened Sharma with a knife. They took Rs 2,000, an ATM card, his cellphone and other important documents and fled the spot. Since it was dark, Sharma could not note down the auto’s registration number. They’ll be arrested soon.”
