A 78-year-old woman was robbed by unidentified assailants at her residence in CR Park, Southeast Delhi, early on Tuesday morning.
Police said the assailants broke into the house of Archana Chakraborty, a resident of Pocket 40, Chittaranjan Park. They scaled the wall and broke into the house by breaking the glass window at the main entrance and opening the lock from the inside.
Police said the assailants tied her up, gagged her and attacked her with a rod. They ransacked the house, stole a few gold ornaments and cash before fleeing.
Archana Chakraborty is registered with the senior citizen cell of the Delhi Police. Her husband is an ex-IAS officer.
As soon as the assailants fled, police said, Archana rang the bell attached to her bed and alerted the domestic help who lives upstairs. He untied her and called police, following which a team arrived. She was taken to a nearby hospital where she was administered minor first-aid.
Police said they were analysing CCTV footage from cameras in the area to establish the identity of the culprits. Police said two persons were seen leaving through gate number 7 of the area but their faces were not clear in the footage.
A case has been registered at Kalkaji police station. Archana has two children, who live abroad. Police said they were questioning hawkers and scrap dealers in the area.
