“After 5-7 minutes, the two men attacked me. I was tied up and held at gunpoint. I tried to scream but they stuffed a cloth in my mouth and blindfolded me.

“They snatched my mobile phone, laptop and wallet. They then took me to a forest area where they forcibly took my PIN. Two men waited with me while the third one went to an ATM. They thrashed and dumped me. I somehow removed my blindfold and realised I was on the Punhana-Hodal road. I went to a hospital for treatment,” the victim told the police. — TNS
