After beating him, they snatched his bag containing a laptop, mobile phone, some clothes and Rs.2 lakh in cash which he had brought from his father on Monday from Hastinapur.
They also forced him to reveal an ATM pin code to withdraw Rs.25,000 from his ICICI bank account. Later, they set him free in an isolated area. They warned him of dire consequences if he informed police and boasted they belonged to Anil Dujana gang, police said.
The victim reached Kasna police station late night and narrated the entire incident to the officer in charge.
“We have registered the case and are trying to arrest the culprits. The CCTV footage has been taken out from the ICICI Bank ATM where the criminal was seen withdrawing money. He remained in the kiosk for over eight minutes,” said investigating officer Satendra Malik.
