The accused have been identified as Akshay (20) and Shantanu Kumar Pandey (29). Police said that the duo along with their associate Vineet Singh, who is still absconding, were planning to sell the robbed vehicle but failed to do so.

“Singh works in a steel factory in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar,” said police.

According to RP Meena, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Southeast district, the incident took place on the intervening night of November 17 and 18 when the driver picked up a woman passenger from Tughlakabad Extension.

During interrogation, the accused said in order to earn easy money, they along with their third associate planned to rob the car. However, they could not sell it, the DCP said.
