A woman judge was robbed of her bag on Friday by two motorcycle-borne men who followed her car nearly three km from the court and struck at the first opportunity.
According to sources, the woman, an Additional Judge at the Saket court, did not see a single policeman during the time she was being chased as she was driving to her home in Kalkaji.
The robbers began chasing the woman from the Sarita Vihar underpass and managed to lift her bag at the Ma Anandimayi Marg.
Police have filed a case and are investigating. The incident comes days after a journalist Joymala Bagchi was attacked by robbers.
Joymala was attacked in South Delhi’s Chittaranjan Park area on Sunday evening, leaving her with multiple injuries, the police said.
Joymala Bagchi was travelling in an auto-rickshaw when two young men on a motorcycle pulled up next to her and tried to snatch her phone.
She was pulled with such force that she fell out of the moving auto, the police said.
The thieves managed to grab her phone and flee the scene.
Bagchi, who works for news agency ANI, suffered fractures on her leg and jaw and had to get multiple stitches for her wounds.
She can only consume a liquid diet for now and is in a hospital.
