Nagpur, Apr 18 (PTI) A software engineer was robbed of his newly-purchased sports utility vehicle allegedly by three people he had given a lift in Gwalior in neighbouring Madhya Pradesh, police in Nagpur said on Sunday.

Victim Ajay Panugotu (23) has told police that he and his friend were driving back after purchasing the vehicle from Delhi when three men approached them in Gwalior and asked them for a lift in view of the coronavirus-induced restrictions on transport, an official said.

'On Saturday, at around 10:30pm, the three accused got Panugotu to stop the car at gunpoint and then drove away with it, taking along with them mobile phones and laptops kept in the vehicle. A case has been filed in Wathoda police station and further probe was underway,' he added. PTI COR BNM BNM
