A Family was robbed at gunpoint by three masked miscreants at the parking of their residence in Delhi’s Gujranwala Model Town area around 3 am on Monday.

The entire incident was captured in the CCTV camera installed in the garage. The incident took place as soon as the owner went to shut the door of his garage after parking the car. Three unidentified men then barged into their premises with revolvers in their hand and looted the man and his wife who was sitting inside the car at gunpoint.

The victim has been identified as Varun Bahl, who was driving a Mercedes to home along with his wife and children on the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday. 

Two masked men took Varun's wallet, containing Rs 19,000 and a gold bracelet. The third man took away the mobile phone of Varun's wife, who was still sitting in the car along with her children.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (northwest), Vijayanta Arya said the victim had not informed the police about the incident immediately. 

The patrolling party of Adarsh Nagar police station, which was standing nearby found the movement of the three men suspicious and chased them.

The three men opened fire after the patrol team intercepted them, the officer said. 

"In retaliation, the police also fired back. The three, however, fled the spot. No injuries were reported," the officer said. 
The victim filed a complaint with the police on Sunday afternoon, the officer said, adding a case has been registered and efforts are being made to nab the accused.
