Niece of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has become latest target of criminals in national capital as she was robbed of her purse near Civil Lines on Saturday.

The incident happened when two bike-borne miscreants snatched the purse from Damayanti Ben Modi, daughter of the prime minister’s brother, outside the gates of Gujrati Samaj Bhawan in Civil Lines at around 7 am.

According to reports, the woman was getting out of an autorickshaw at the gate of a hotel when the miscreants snatched her handbag and fled. The purse contained Rs 50,000 in cash, two mobile phones, and important documents.

Based on a complaint by Damayanti Ben Modi, the police registered a case and later identified the two snatchers. Delhi Commissioner of Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) Mandeep Singh Randhawa said, “A case has been registered at Civil Lines police station and an investigation is underway.”

The police are also scanning the CCTV footage of the area to nab the accused.

The incident happened soon after Damayanti Ben reached Delhi from Amritsar in the morning. Two persons on a scooter snatched the woman’s purse containing Rs 50,000, two mobile phones, some documents and other valuables around 7 am when she got down at the Gujrati Samaj Bhawan in North Delhi’s Civil Lines area, a senior police officer said.

The incident occurred a few kilometres from the residence of Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and Chief minister Arvind kejriwal.

Damayanti Ben had a flight to Ahmedabad in the evening.

She informed the police and on her statement, a case under section 356 (assault or criminal force in attempt to commit theft of property carried by a person) and 379 (punishment for theft) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was registered at Civil Lines police station, they said.

“I came to Delhi and reached Gujarati Samaj Bhavan on Saturday morning. I was scheduled to take a flight for Gujarat in the evening. I was getting off the auto-rickshaw when the snatchers targeted me,” the woman said.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national spokesperson Raghav Chadha said the broad daylight snatching and robbery of the PM’s niece “shows how miserable, pathetic and worrisome the law and order situation is in Delhi”.

A spate of such incidents has been reported from around Delhi in recent weeks. A journalist was robbed while covering PM Modi’s return from the US at Palam airport last month, while another scribe was targeted on the Ashram flyover when he was travelling in an auto with his two friends. A pillion rider snatched the journalist’s mobile phone and fled.
