JAMMU: A day after car was snatched by a group of men, in yet another incident the same group thrashed the driver and fled away with the vehicle on the national highway in Samba district.
“We have sounded alert and launched manhunt to find out the culprits who are identified and locals,” a senior police official here said.
He said that the criminals last evening hired the taxi (JK02BF-3244) and asked the driver to move towards Samba as more passengers are to be boarded, adding, “on reaching Vijaypur area of Samba, they thrashed the driver and fled away with the taxi.”
“This is a second incident took place in the last three days in the same area,” he added and said, “the culprits are identified and we are on job to trace them.”
Earlier on April 16, the snatchers adopted the similar modus operandi and fled away with car on gun point in Samba district.
