If someone happens to knock on your car window in Noida, you would be better off not rolling it down. For all you know, it could be the Knock Knock gang, a bunch of thugs who have been approaching cars and robbing unsuspecting people of valuables they may have on themselves. Ten such cases have already been reported from Noida in the past two weeks alone.
The latest incident to be reported was near Sector 20, where Nikhil Singh, a manager with a multinational firm, was the target. He was waiting at the traffic signal at Sector 19, when a youth approached his car and knocked on his window. As soon as Singh rolled it down, the youth started yelling for help, as if hit by the car. Before Singh could even react, another youth came running towards him, snatched his iPhone and fled.
Noida Police has swung into action, and have summoned all Knock Knock gang victims in a bid to identify its members. SP (City) Noida Dinesh Yadav told City Spidey that a few special teams have been formed to track the gang down and that they would soon be put behind bars.
