New Delhi: An autorickshaw driver and two northeastern women were injured when one of them tried to resist a snatching bid, police said on Monday.

The incident took place on October 22 when the two women were going to Majnu Ka Tila after office.

The two women, who are from the northeast, are currently living in southeast Delhi’s East of Kailash.

When they reached Y point near Sarai Kale Khan, two unknown bikers came near their autorickshaw and tried to snatch one of the two women’s mobile phones, the police said.

While snatching the mobile phone, the bikers also tried to pull the 41-year-old woman out of the auto, they said.

The autorickshaw got imbalanced and it overturned, resulting in injuries to the auto driver and the two women, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) Esha Pandey said.

All the three injured were admitted to Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital and were discharged after treatment, the officer said.

“Based on the statements of the woman, we have registered a case under section 394 (Voluntarily causing hurt in committing robbery) and 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code at Sunlight Colony police station,” Pandey said.

A probe into the matter is underway and several CCTV cameras installed in and around the route of the scene of the crime are being analysed to establish the identity of the accused and ascertain the sequence of events, she added.
