I dont know where to start from. I dont know what to complain about
- About the local Gurgaon crowd being inexplicable stupid? Mind you, the locals, read uneducated.
- About my physique not being great? I cannot fight these tall healthy guys!
- About me taking that shortcut route to home, which by the way every other ‘ordinary’ person takes?
- or About Gurgaon Police – who tell me if I got assaulted and robbed of a Rs.32,000 phone – it is my fault that i carry an expensive phone? ‘Victim Blaming’ is quite a known feature of Gurgaon Police!
Yes, today while returning from office with my friend, we got assaulted, injured and robbed of my phone and whatever money my friend had. Thanks to some gutsy behavior in the later stages, we saved our laptops, our credit cards, my watch, some more cash and most importantly – our Lives!
And all this happened when the sun had barely set – around 7-7.30 PM! I got the message, Welcome to Gurgaon. 5 men surrounded us at a somewhat lonely patch of the road we take to home everyday and within few minutes we were running to save our lives! Probably the scariest incident of my life where for 5-10 mins i actually remained NUMB
By the way, a small question for Gurgaon Police – if women should not step out after 8 PM, should men stay inside after 7 PM?

I can totally understand what you must have gone through…the other day, my wife and me, while going back to Delhi by MG Road got almost beaten up by a gang of rowdies in broad daylight..around 5-5:30 PM…And I am still figuring out why and what exactly happened back then…they were insisting on me opening my car doors…thank God I have this habit of keeping car doors locked all time…And I have still not gotten over it. Sad state of affairs in Gurgaon.
Damn! This is really scary and I can understand what you and your friend might have gone through. Really sad man!
and other day we were talking about among friends what it takes to live in north India and this post has a lesson to learn…perhaps we would never return there…
Thanks for sharing your story Nitin. Just like Terrorist attacks, its time we (the common man) should learn to live with incidents like these. Hail my country!
Just because you haven't heard similar horror stories down south makes you say so. I often used to drive frightened in B'lore because of the incidents i heard/read/saw there.
Not that i say Gurgaon is safe, but if educated people like you start distinguishing India by north-south and other stuff……..not sure where this country is headed!
Just came to know of an incident that a friend witnessed in Whitefield Bangalore on Saturday:
A guy was pulled out of his car at a red light, beaten, robbed off his valuables and the miscreants then drove off in his car!
Now you tell how is South safe?
its really scary,that thinking about to come out after 8 in that place,…
Am not sure Ankur as to what else could we do? You've yourself seen the way our Police behaves. They are real goondas.
Oh teri ki … sad !
Who was the other one with you? Nitin?
btw, one person likes this. Must be GGN police.
Liked by GGN Police..hehe
This is really scary!
I have known this behavior in DElhi- but gurgaon sounds to be one Nasty place!Talk about Mumbai- where even women don't need to look at their watches!!!http://thefleamarketqueen.blog…
