Hisar, Oct 8: Some unidentified assailants allegedly burnt a businessman to death after looting ₹ 11 lakh cash from him in Haryana's Hisar district, police said on Wednesday. The man was 35.

The incident took place in the Hansi area on Tuesday night, they said.

Ram Mehar, a resident of Data village on Bhatla-Data road in Hansi, was going home in his car when the robbers intercepted him, police said.

The attackers then allegedly looted the businessman, locked him in the car and set it on fire, they said.

On receiving information, police rushed to the spot and found Mr Mehar charred to death inside the vehicle. Later, the relatives of the victim were contacted after he was identified through the number plate of the vehicle.

Mr Mehar, who owned a factory of disposable cups and plates in Barwala, was travelling to Data village from Hisar after withdrawing ₹ 11 lakh from a bank, the victim's family told police.

A case has been registered against unknown persons and the CCTV footage from the area is being scrutinised to trace the culprits, said Hansi police spokesperson Subhash.

Hitting out at the BJP-led government in the state over the incident, Congress party's chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said "jungle raj" prevails in Haryana, where criminals were having a free run.

He said it was shocking that the businessman was looted in the middle of a road and then burnt.

"Where is the government?" the Congress leader asked.

Chennai, Oct 22: A DHL Express truck carrying Rs 15 crore mobile phones was hijacked and looted by 10 men near Krishnagiri in the early hours on Wednesday. The truck was heading to Mumbai from Chennai.

The robbers looted the truck after tying up the driver and the cleaner. The robbers, who were all heard speaking in Hindi, later abandoned the truck after taking all the booty.

The truck was carrying 14,000 phones from a Redmi unit at Poonamallee in Tamil Nadu capital Chennai, said a report in Times of India. 

The driver identified as 29-year-old K Sathish Kumar left Poonamallee at around 3 pm on Tuesday. Sathish and the cleaner N Arun halted for dinner at Vellore around 8 pm and again resumed the journey at 10.30 pm.

When the truck neared Melumalai on the Chennai-Bengaluru national highway at around 2 am on Wednesday, it was blocked by another truck and six men got out of it to overpower the driver and the cleaner.

"The robbers attacked Sathish and Arun before blindfolding them and tying their hands and feet. They then fled with the truck carrying phones," said C Murali, DSP, Hosur.

After some time, the robbers stopped the truck on a roadside. In the meantime, they were also joined by four other men from the second truck. They tied-up driver and the cleaner and were later dumped in nearby bushes some distance from the road.

The two trucks then moved towards Azagupavi where the robbed truck was found abandoned.

According to police, all 10 men did not cover their faces as they appear to be from other states. Police officials said they have formed 17 teams to trace the suspects. Though the robbers left no clue,  cops are scanning the CCTV footage of the areas to identify the truck and the accused.
