Damyanti Ben Modi came to Delhi from Amritsar on Saturday morning. She took an auto-rickshaw to reach the Civil Lines area in North Delhi. At around 7 a.m. she reached Gujarati Samaj Bhawan. While she was getting off from the three-wheeler two miscreants suddenly appeared on a scooty and swooped at her, said Delhi Police spokesperson Anil Mittal.

Mittal said we are closing in on the accused and they might be arrested any time soon.

While talking to the media the woman said that she is a relative of the Prime Minister.

The victim told : "I came to Delhi from Amritsar with family and was going to Gujarati Samaj Bhawan. As soon as the auto-rickshaw reached the gate of the Bhawan two men swooped at me. They were riding on a scooty."

"Before I could understand anything they fled with my purse that contained more than Rs 50,000 cash, two mobile phones and some important documents," she said.

Damyanti Ben added: "I had to take a flight to Ahmedabad on Saturday evening and the tickets were in that purse. Now, I don't know how it would be managed. It was a bad experience to visit Delhi."

North District Deputy Commissioner of Police Monika Bhardwaj, however, avoided making any comment on the incident.
