Six drunk youngsters on two motorcycles assaulted a techie with beer bottles and made away with his car and other valuables early on Saturday, about 500 m from Gangammanagudi police station near Jalahalli.
Around 3 am on Saturday, Sajith (43), a manager with HP, was returning to his home in Vidyaranyapura from Electronics City when some drunk youngsters hit his Maruti Swift car as he was slowing down at a speed-breaker. They got into a verbal duel regarding the dent on his car and he soon left towards Yelahanka.
However, about 3 km away, Sajith was again stopped by the youths. They claimed that Sajith had injured one of the bikers and demanded that he pay compensation.
While they were talking, one of the bikers hit him on the head with a beer bottle. Two others got into the car and drove away even as the others escaped from the scene. They made away with Sajith’s phone, iPad and laptop.
An injured Sajith then walked to the police station to lodge a complaint and got himself admitted at Columbia Asia Hospital near Hebbal for his injuries.
According to police officials, CCTV footage from the entry and exit points of the defence area in Jalahalli show Sajith as well as the bikers. “However, as it was dark, the footage is not very clear. We have formed a team to look into the dacoity and locate the car,” police officials said.
Sajith identified one of the bikes as a Bullet and believes the other one was a Pulsar.
“The complainant believes that they were drunk college students. All of them, including the complainant, are Malayalis and their conversation was in Malayalam. We have some visuals with regard to the incident and other clues that will lead us to the miscreants. We are hopeful of catching them soon,” DCP-North Sandeep Patil said.
