Chandigarh: “We are relaxed that our 3-year- old son was not along in the car when the robbers did car jacking, as the situation could have worsened “, said Sukhdev Singh Chadha, husband of victim from whom miscreants robbed away Mercedes C-Class car from Sector 15 on Thursday night.
Narrating what happened, Chadha said “I halted near Sector 15 market to buy cheese and asked my wife to remain in the car and then my son (Guggu) also started crying to go with me. Only my wife was sitting behind in the car when burglars attacked”.
“I heard scream of a woman, then I thought it could be something else, but I was shocked to see when local people were coming with my wife to me, and my wife was badly injured with wounds on her back, hands and neck”.
“I don’t know if they were in a plan of abducting my wife who somehow managed to jump off from moving vehicle as they rushed away with the car within 5 minutes. If our son would have been along in the car, then they could have also planned to take along our son,” added Chadha.
Two men carjacked the Mercedes C-class of industrialist Sukhdev Singh Chadha (40) from near Verka milk booth in Sector 15 at around 8:30 pm on Thursday.
Industrialist’s wife, Parampreet Kaur Chadha (36), was in the car when a miscreant in a red T-shirt knocked at the driver’s-side door and asked the woman to move car, as it was blocking traffic.
