Two days after a 33-year-old homemaker claimed she was robbed at knifepoint in a moving taxi between Kalbadevi and Dadar, the LT Marg police have not found a single eyewitness in the case.
“We are trying to trace a witness, who saw the robbery,” said Nisar Tamboli, deputy commissioner of police (zone II).
he police have prepared sketches of the three accused, including the taxi driver, based on the description given by Shah, and they are also trying to get any CCTV footages of the incident.
“The taxi was moving from Kalbadevi to Dadar, so, there have to be some establishments along the way that have installed CCTV cameras. We are trying to find any such establishments and are also questioning hawkers and shopkeepers to check if they saw anything that day,” said an officer from LT Marg police station.
Shah claimed that on Wednesday, after removing gold ornaments from her locker in the Kalbadevi branch of Bank of Baroda, she hired a taxi from outside the bank and was to meet her husband Nirmal in the CP Tank area. She claimed that two unidentified men got inside the taxi and robbed her at knifepoint, and threw her out of the vehicle.
Shah approached the Matunga police to file a complaint, which was later transferred to the LT Marg police station.
“We will reconstruct the entire crime scene to understand how the incident took place,” said Avinash Sonawane, senior inspector, LT Marg police station.
