Masked men loot lawyer's house

NEW DELHI, JULY 12. Three armed and masked intruders barged into a lawyer's house and looted Rs. 18,000 in cash and jewellery in the Okhla area of South Delhi on Wednesday.

The incident occurred at the residence of advocate, Syed Mohammad. He was present in the house at that time along with his family. The three rang the bell and when a family member opened the door, they barged in.

Waving country-made weapons, the trio demanded that the keys to the almirahs be handed over to them. When Mr. Mohammad tried to resist, he was beaten up. Subsequently, they managed to extract the keys and take the money and the jewellery before escaping.

The Okhla police were informed later and a case of robbery was registered at the police station. A hunt for the suspects has been launched.
