A man's SUV was stolen right in front of his eyes after he stepped out of his vehicle to persuade a woman in a hatchback to move her car as it was blocking the road in Hauz Khas market in South Delhi.
Rahul Khanna, a resident of Gurgaon, told police that around 4 pm on Friday he found that a woman had parked her i10 in the middle of the road outside his office in Hauz Khas market's E-Block area.
Initially, he did not get down from his Scorpio and requested the woman to move her vehicle to the side.
"But the woman refused to budge and ignored my requests. After waiting for about five minutes, I stepped out of my Scorpio, walked up to the woman and requested her again to clear the road because, by then, there were other vehicles behind me. The i10 had caused a traffic snarl," Khanna said in his complaint to police.
Khanna told police that the woman was "offensive and used obscene language following which we entered into a verbal spat" with her. The woman called police and a crowd gathered in the area.
"She was blaming me and made false allegations," Khanna said.
In the meantime, a man approached Khanna, who was busy arguing with the woman. He told him that he works in an office in the area and offered to move the Scorpio from the middle of the road because it, too, was blocking traffic.
"He said he is a worker from an office in the market. I believed him and handed over my car keys to park the Scorpio at a suitable place to clear the traffic. Then I got busy in the discussion with the woman," Khanna said.
As the argument continued, the man fled with his car. After a while, Khanna turned around and found that the man as well as his vehicle, a white Scorpio, were nowhere to be seen.
