A realtor was robbed of Rs 14 lakh in Electronics City in broad daylight on Wednesday. In another incident reported around the same time at Nagavara Junction near Hennur, thieves broke the window of a car and took away a bag containing `12 lakh.

Police said Gajendra, a realtor from Malagondahalli, about 2 km from Electronics City, lodged a complaint stating that miscreants robbed his bag containing `14 lakh. The incident took place between 1 pm and 1.30 pm, opposite Indian Overseas Bank in full public view.

According to police, Gajendra parked his scooter in front of the bank since he was withdrawing a huge amount and told the security guard that hence, his vehicle was not parked in the parking area.

As he came out, he found his scooter’s tyre deflated. Gajendra called his friend Pandyan to the spot and was trying to fix the deflated tyre. At this time, four miscreants, who came on two motorcycles, accosted Gajendra who was holding the bag of cash, snatched it and escaped.

Senior police officers including South-East DCP T D Pawar rushed to the spot. Gajendra maintained that he had purchased a property and had withdrawn money for the purpose.However, the police sources explained that the statements of the victim differed. “At one time, he said he kept the bag on the scooter. Then, he says he was holding it himself. This might be due to stress. We are looking at all angles,” Electronics City police said.

Nagaraju R, a land developer, lost Rs 12 lakh at Nagavara junction near Hennur Outer Ring Road on Wednesday after miscreants broke the driver’s side glass of his car and took away a bag containing cash, site documents and also the vehicle tool kit.

“I came back to my vehicle within 10 minutes and saw the glass broken and the bag containing cash and other documents stolen,” Nagaraju explained.
