      Mugging incidents Bangalore - Advisory

      Below are the Dos and Donts as suggested by HSR Layout Police Inspector Mr Rajesh. Hope it will be useful for the bangalore guys

      HSR Layout Police Inspector Mr Rajesh has provided do's and don't regarding mugging in Bellandur Area. It also has list of phone numbers to be contacted during any emergency.

      Recently a certain type of vehicle mugging cases are on the rise. They seem to be targeting IT employees specifically.
      The areas that have been targeted are around Iblur junction, between Iblur and Marathahalli, or Iblur to Kaikondrahalli or Kaikondrahalli to Wipro.

      Timings is usually between 11 am to 4 pm. The offenders are riding a black Pulsar They are two or three of them. The vehicle has a kannada registration number plate. Identification marks: One person is stout and has a dark complexion. Another one is lean with medium complexion.

      They stop your vehicle on a pretext, saying that you caused an accident.
      Before stopping your vehicle, they continuously honk. Till the time you stop your vehicle, they are behind.
      With little opportunity, immediately they sit inside your vehicle.
      They try to panic you by saying: by accident you have injured a person and compensation has to be paid.
      They tell you, you have to pay the amount immediately, as the injured person is the brother of a local Don. If you dont settle, the amount might be problem and they induce you to pay the money.
      They ask you to give the money, by drawing from an ATM.
      Usually they target a person driving alone in the vehicle.
      They will persuade you to pay the money, they speak Kannada and broken Hindi.
      They will take money or gold but not cell phone.


      If you come across such an incident, be bold, do not panic.
      Lock the internal locks of the vehicle. So that they cannot sit inside your vehicle.
      If by chance they get into your vehicle, get out immediately - you will be in a public place. Raise your voice and call the people around.
      Immediately take their photograph and as well as vehicle number plate with your cell phone.
      If they try to threaten you or manhandle you, keep a pepper spray as a defense and use it properly and carefully if necessary.
      If there are any such cases or even if you suspect any such persons in the locality, please call on the below mentioned cell phone numbers.
      If you are bold enough, immediately snatch their bike keys. Take their photographs, call the police, if the public are willing to help, secure them and hand over to police.
      If you are smart/tactful enough and can hold them in conversion, inform the police by way of SMS or call and assure that you will pay them and engage them till police reaches you.
      You can even tell them that you can arrange money from your friend and take them to place, where you know the people and then tr y to catch them with the help of known people and hand over them to police.

      Do not panic and give away all your valuables.
      Remember their operation is a planned one and even they are equally scared but they pretend to be courageous.
      Do not lose your temper. Be cool and handle the situation diplomatically.
      Don’t take too much risk and don your life - your safety is more important.
      Don’t get down from the vehicle. And dont allow any stranger to get into your vehicle. If they chase, immediately call the police or reach the traffic police for help. Stop the vehicle where there a lot of people and take their help.

      Please be bold. Bangalore is still safe. There is nothing to panic. We are optimistic that we will be able to nab them. A squad comprising of four police personnel is formed to nab these fellows. Please remember our crime constables are now patrolling the same roads in plain clothes and their phone numbers is mentioned below. You can reach them for help either on the officers cell number, Cheetah number or Crime constable number.

      We are glad to serve you and we are at your service 24/7 to help the needy and bring the culprits before the court of law. We look forward for your cooperation.

      Thanks, Anwar, for this. One precaution to be taken at all time (which is what I do whenever I am in the city or highway) - always keep doors centrally locked. If anyone stops me, I open only a bit of my side window to find out what they want, never open fully.

      Happening now days ,hmm so do they target only software professionals with out station registrations or even local goons travelling in break neck speeds in their scorpios.

      Most of the new age IT guys i have seen personally <not all but majority> are soft spoken and moslty from out of state.These people are concentrated in HSR,Sarjapur road and surroundings.They are seen every where in malls ,super markets ,atms,etc,they just throw their card and purchase,due to this local people take advantage and double the prices and also take them for a royal ride.All one needs to do to scare them is 1 tight slap .


      In and around HSR LAYOUT ,sarjapur,electronic city is concentrated with mostly goons who are hired y real estate guys ,and when they dont have work they resort to such things.90% of the masses have seen from 10years even before many have not heard of HSR layout are pacca criminals.So they get a easy target ,Loaded IT guys are their easy target.

      What you can do to prevent .

      Preferably drive and buy suvs like scorpio and safari.

      Get dark sun films installed so that people cannot see how many people are ther inside.

      Even if they honk shift to a lower gear and keep driving,dont eat sshit that something will happen to your car,car is not important than life.

      According to me no bike guy can stop a car driver if the driver becomes aggresive ,let it be even a maruthi 800.

      Guys get to know your neibours even though they dont belong to your state and try to learn the local language .
      Most of the guys get their 1st job,buy a car and start driving ,they are life time L boards,even if a volcano is chasing them they wont and cant exceed 40km.Either learn properly and become confident of **** up . I have personally gone into situations like almost going to crash becuse of their skills.You guys have no chance escaping from the goons.

      Calling cops after you got screwed a different thing,but please do call up HSR layout police station especially Inspector Rajesh,he is a strict and honest police officer of the new generation so dont worry.

      Guys who have no knowledge of HSR layout and its roots ,who dont stay in bangalore and have no clue of the situation please dont pounce on me,i wont take it as a joke from now on.

      Very valid point Sandeep. Use your car as a weapon and don't stop unless there are people around. And most importantly, don't lose your cool.

      Unhappy Mugging incident at DRDO Phase 2, Doorvani Nagar

      Last night I have a similar kind of incident happened in DRDO phase 2, Doorvani Nagar, near to Reliance fresh. I am in Bangalore from last 10yrs or so but I never had such bad experience. I was coming to my home from KR Puram to Kaggadas pura, through DRDO phase 2 and the lane in front of Reliance fresh is narrow, and 90 degree curve, there was a two wheeler bearing reg no KA53H9839 parked on the road. I was about to take turn in my car and one Tata Sumo was coming from front so unintentionally I just took little bit left and back side of my car touched the two wheeler and two wheeler just fell down. Out of courtesy I just got down of my car and checking whether anything happened to two wheeler. There was no scratch and the bike was perfectly allright but the owner was not ready and claimed that handle needs repair and asked me 2000 rupees. Within no time a group of people sorrounded my vehicled and suggested me to pay money to get out of the trouble. My wife, my father was with me and unfortunately I did not have that much money and one person suggested me to get down from car go to nearest ATM center with one of the crowd. But I just reminded all incident about mugging so I kind of stopped inside car and asked them to call Police. They were not ready to call police and asked me to go to nearest local garage get the bike repaired. I just followed them to nearest garage and the mechanic also seemed to be part of the group, gave a quote of 2500 for repair. I then asked them to call police and one of them told me nothing will happen even police comes too. WIth my further insistence, one person called Mahadev pura police and two police came in bike but they had some discussion with one person in local language and without talking to me the police disappeared. I was again back to square. Mean while I called couple of my friends. In the mean time one rough speaking guy from the crowd started foul mouthing my wide and father. I was literally got scared. Three of my friends arrived in the spot and then I got a sense of security. The owner of the bike now asked us to pay him 400 rupees and My friends talked to garage mechanic paid 500 rupees and finally I came out of this mess. If my friends had not arrived there I could have paid 2500 for nothing. It was literally a nightmare for me, I could not able to sleep the night thinking about this incident. This place is hugely crowded but still these local guys managed to threaten me to extract me and even police did not come forward to help me.
