Four armed men snatch car in Mohali’s Sec 70 at gunpoint


Four armed men snatched a car in Sector 70 early Sunday morning at gunpoint. It is the fifth carjacking in the district in a span of one month.

According to the police, the incident occurred between 2 am and 3 am on Sunday. Complainant Jass Vishwas, a resident of Sector 56, Chandigarh, works in a call centre in Industrial Area Phase VIII-B.

A police officer told The Indian Express that Vishwas was off on Saturday but he had come to meet one of his friends and at the time of the incident, he was in the car with her woman friend and had parked his car on the slip road near Sector 70 market.

“Vishwas and his friend were both in the car. He told us that four men in a car arrived there and knocked at the windowpane. Vishwas opened the door and the men pulled him out of the vehicle,” the officer said.
