Greater Noida: The incident happened when the labourer, Vikas Kumar, a resident of Sector Eicher (who works at a construction site in Greater Noida) was returning from his work when two robbers who were on their bike snatched away ₹ 1500, only to find that the notes were in denominations of ₹ 500.
“I was walking from the site towards the bus stand when two bike-borne men rode towards me. They snatched my purse and fled,” Kumar told TOI.
As Vikas was preparing himself to call for help, he was taken aback when he found that snatchers came back towards him.
“They came back and threw the purse at me. Then they slapped me and said I should have carried money in Rs 100 notes,” he said.
