Delhi: Carjackers strike near IGI, dump driver

New Delhi: A 64-year-old man was taken captive in his Ertiga car near Terminal-1 of Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) on Sunday night before being thrown out of it in Gurgaon by three carjackers who fled with the SUV towards Jaipur.

Vishvanath Mehto, who works as a driver for a businessman, had parked his car on a road near IGIA when the three men came and shoved him inside his car and drove away. Additional DCP (southwest) Benita Mary Jaiker said a robbery case had been registered and multiple teams had been formed to trace the culprits and the car.
Mehto told the police that he had gone to the airport on a pick-up duty. He had left for the airport in the Maruti Ertiga, bearing registration number DL 6CQ 4992, at 7.45pm and reached Terminal-1 an hour later, but decided to wait just outside the terminal area instead of going to the designated parking lot.

He told the police that he had parked the car just before the traffic signal at Mehram Nagar and was waiting for his guest’s flight to land. After sitting inside for a while, Mehto decided to come out of the car. Immediately after stepping out, he noticed the three men coming towards him and before he could react, the trio shoved him onto the back seat and told him to keep quiet.

While two of the gang members sat next to him on the rear seat, the third one took control of the wheels and turned it towards National Highway-8. “When I tried to stop them, they told me to sit quietly or else they would kill me. I panicked and stayed mum even as the men drove the car in a rash manner on the highway towards Gurgaon,” Mehto said in his complaint.
