A 45-year-old man, S. Jagtar Singh, was assaulted by a three-member gang that robbed his mobile phone and ₹24,000 at SIDCO Industrial Estate in Kappalur on Sunday night.

Police said the victim, a native of Punjab, was working as a computer operator in a logistics company here. While he was walking towards his motorbike after having food in an eatery, three persons who came on a motorbike hit the back of his head with a sharp object.

The incident occurred around 7.45 p.m. The gang escaped under the cover of darkness.

Jagtar Singh has been admitted to a private hospital with bleeding injury on his head. Tirumangalam Town police are investigating.

In another incident, two motorbike-borne men snatched the mobile phone from T. Suresh, 36, of Ariyur on Kumaram road around 1 p.m. Alanganallur police are investigating.
