Last night we had a horrible incident, I thought to share it here to give you all heads up to beware and cautious while going out on super-highway especially after dark. A group of us friends went for dinner to a motel around 6-8 kms away from toll plaza. The place's name was Usmania. We had two vehicles. One was my friend's Hi-roof and other was mine City. On the way back, my friend was around 2 kms ahead from us as we were bit stuck while crossing the highway. I floored the pedal and after a bit we saw our friend's car parked road-side and some guy was standing by the driver's gate. At first I though there was some problem with the vehicle and I braked a bit but then we saw a chamchamati TT in the guy's left hand, which is facing, deliberately I guess, oncoming traffic, so that no one should dare to stop. The other friends in my car told me not to stop, that seems better idea then. We though to stop and wait at toll plaza but there was no highway police there. So, we travelled till Ancholi, completely traumatized as we didn't have any idea that what happened with us friends. Calling them was a bad idea too as may be some of them have had hidden there phone underneath. We were just praying that they may come out safe. Thanks God no one was harmed, though, they robbed almost 30-40K in terms of cash and mobile phones. The incident took place almost 6 kms before the toll plaza, while coming back KHI.
Later the other friends reached at our rendezvous point. They told us that there were two guys on 125, they got parallel and cocked the gun and shouted to stop else they will shoot. I guess my friend did the right thing and stopped as with suzuki hi-roof you don't have much choice to scoot away.
While we were scooting, we saw another vehicle, a coaster being looted almost 2-3 kms from our friends'. We often visit restaurants on highway but this was our first horrible experience and we saw 2 consecutive incidents. So, I guess may be the looting is on the rise in that area. I would suggest to be cautious while going out especially if you are with family. Take extra care. May God keep all of us safe. Thanks
