When he opened the door, a man came from behind and caught hold of it. Another one grabbed and pushed him. One more person appeared and pointed a gun at the victim. The three got in the car and drove away. In his complaint to the police, Aditya said his laptop bag, wallet carrying some cash; a mobile phone and other documents were in the car. His sweatshirt was also torn in the melee. Aditya reported the matter to the police.
