Investigators probing the armed robbery in South Delhi's Defence Colony said the white Hyundai Verna (HR 26 AQ 0051), in which the assailants came, was a stolen car.
"It was stolen from Faridabad and an FIR was registered at the NIT police station there on September 26," a police officer said.
Police have also collected CCTV footage from a petrol pump in the service lane. "The car reached the service lane at 12.45 pm, about 25 minutes before the robbery," the officer said.
Police said the CCTV clips also showed the van — a Maruti Eeco — reaching the spot later and stopping right behind the Verna.
Within seconds, the armed assailants were seen getting out of the car and walking towards the van.
The assailants pointed guns at the occupants and ordered them out of the van, police said. Suddenly, one of the assailants was seen firing at the men in the van, pulling them out and fleeing the van.
While the make of the weapon is yet to be ascertained, police said the empty shells recovered from the scene indicate that the assailants may have used Darra pistols (manufactured in Darra, Pakistan).
"From the clips, the assailants appeared to be in the age group of 30-35 years. There is a probability that the assailants were travelling in two cars, one of which could have been parked on the service lane before the Verna arrived. It is not possible for seven to eight well-built men to fit into a single car," the officer said.
