Delhi, our national capital, must be ashamed of. The crime against the North East people has no ending. A North East boy working in call centre was looted at gun point by four miscreants in the early morning of November 10th in Maharani Bagh, New Delhi. The miscreants assaulted him, forcibly took away his ATM Cards and thrown him out of the moving car. The victim works in a BPO based in Noida (UP).

According to the information reaching to NESC & Helpline, the victim was waiting for his call centre cab in Maharani Bagh bus stand at around 6 am on November 6. The cab, unfortunately, forgotten him and gave him a call back from DND flyover telling him to come till this flyover with his own conveyance.

“In the meanwhile, a small car came pretending to be innocent private cab and stop infront of me. There were 4 guys inside the cab apparently 30’s in age. They said they are going to Sector 12/22, Noida which is close to my office. So I enter into that cab. They were quite friendly and asking my name and where I am from. The cab moved towards Sarai Kale Khan claiming to avoid toll tax.

A few minutes later, before Yamuna Bridge towards Mayur Vihar, the one sitting in the middle asked the driver to stop the car and get down, rearranging me to occupied the middle seat saying that he is going to take Gutka. The car moved on and while running on Yamuna Bridge, the one who is infront signaled his friends saying “chaalo” and they began covering the window glasses with sun film and backside with a big travel air bag. The one who sat infront along with the driver pulled out a pistol covering with white cloth and passed on to the one on my right side pointed the pistol on my forehead saying “Yeha se guli dal ke (with his hand on left side of my head), Yeha se nikal dega. Wallet nikal!” I shouted loudly for help but they covered up my mouth tightly and threatened me “awaz maad kar” (Don’t make noise). The one on my left pulled out my wallet and pass on to the front guy. I just have Rs.170 only along with 2 ATM cards. They started asking for the pin code of my ATM cards (SBI & Kotak). I kept silent for a while, they started slapping on my face for the pin codes. Finally, I revealed the code. They repeatedly asked for the code slapping me to ascertain it even though I continuously responded them. While one continues to point his gun at me, the other hold my body tightly and the front guy noted all the details. After they blindfolded me with a piece of cloth, they slow down the car to take a turn where I was thrown out somewhere near Gazipur area. It was around 6:35 am,” as narrated by the victim about the incident.

“Within 3 minutes they have withdrawn cash twice from my Kotak ATM Cards (as per attached withdrawal details)”, the victim told NESC & Helpline.

Dr. Alana Golmei, founder member, North East Support Centre & Helpline, “It is an unfortunate incident where innocent North East people falls under the cruel hands of the miscreants. It is the duty of the Delhi Government to safeguard its citizens, especially the people from the North East regions”. “We have also informed the matter to Shri Robin Hibu, Joint Commissioner of Police, Delhi who responded with affirmative steps,” Dr Golmei added.

Dr Alana Golmei appeals to the Northeast community especially who are working in nightshifts and BPO sectors to be more careful while boarding/travelling in bus/cab/taxi during night.

The victim hails from Peren district of Nagaland, who came to Delhi in 2009 and presently pursuing graduation course in Delhi University. The victim resides in Maharani Bagh and works in BPO to earn for his pocket money.

Till the filing of this story, FIR has not been registered. However, the Helpline is informing the matter to Delhi Police and other higher authorities to take immediate action and book the culprits at the earliest possible.
