The wife and daughter of a retired high court judge were reportedly held hostage in their house in south Delhi’s New Friends Colony on Monday.
According to reports, Riba Kapur, the 78-year-old wife of former Chief Justice Dalip Kumar Kapur alleged that she and her 45-year-old daughter who lives with her were held hostage by the servant and his accomplices. The duo was held at their house in south Delhi’s New Friends Colony.
The version communicated to the police said that the daughter was attacked with an iron rod when they resisted the robbery, and the men then ransacked the house and decamped with cash and jewellery worth around Rs 20 lakh. They fled the spot in the car owned by the mother-daughter duo.
“The women were held hostage in their room and one of the men stood guard outside. The other men ransacked the house and fled with cash and jewellery. The woman’s daughter later called the police control room and informed them about the robbery,” the police was quoted as saying.
Reports claim that the servant was hired just four days before the incident, with the police now having registered a case against them and putting in efforts to nab the accused.
