Police suspect the role of an insider in the case wherein two persons, posing as courier boys, barged into the house an 85-year-old woman and robbed her of cash and jewellery in South Delhi's Defence Colony area. Police have detained her driver for questioning. The incident was reported on Wednesday afternoon.
The driver, Sanjeev, told police that he had gone to the market when the robbers struck — around 3 pm — and that he returned home only around 5.30 pm to find the woman lying on the ground with her limbs tied.
The police have also accessed the CCTV footage from the adjoining market, which is being analysed.
The woman, Surjeet Puri, lives alone in her apartment. She was tied to a chair and robbed of Rs 20,000 cash and the jewellery she was wearing.
Puri is the wife of former Punjab chief secretary SS Puri and mother of India's deputy permanent member to UN Manjeev Puri. She is also registered with the Delhi Police Senior Citizen scheme.
