Rajasthan traffic cop robbed by nephew, loses Rs 25,000 challan money
The police said the cop’s daughter recognized her cousin but couldn’t identify the other man, whose face was covered.
A traffic cop was robbed of Rs 25,000 challan money by his nephew and an associate in Jodhpur.
“My nephew Ramkesh Meena and his associate tied my daughter to a chair and gagged her mouth while they opened our safe and took Rs 25,000 of traffic challan money which was kept there before I could deposit it in the traffic police headquarters,” 44-year-old sub inspector Ramphool Meena told HT.
Ramphool said the incident happened at his Police Lines residence, where families of cops live in official quarters. He was on duty in the city and his daughter was alone in the house.
Police said Meena’s daughter recognised her cousin Ramkesh but couldn’t identify the other man whose face was covered.
“My daughter said that the two men wanted to murder her to eliminate the witness, but couldn’t, as someone came looking for her (forcing them to flee),” Ramphool said.
The officer mentioned that his nephew was a history-sheeter and had a case registered against them after he ran away with a woman.
“My daughter said that the men thought that I might have a few photos of Ramkesh and the woman, and were searching for them as well,” Ramphool said.
“We have initiated a search for the two people and a case of robbery has been registered,” said Ramesh Kumar Sharma, station house officer, Ratanada police station, Jodhpur.
