Bollywood actress and wife of former India cricketer Manoj Prabhakar was assaulted and robbed of her valuables by thak thak gang in Delhi on Saturday afternoon. At least four members of infamous thak thak gang attacked Farheen Prabhakar when she was on her way to south Delhi’s Select City Walk Mall in Saket. Prabhakar is the resident of Sarvapriya Vihar in south Delhi.
According to police, four members of thak thak gang attacked her while she was on her way to the mall.
“When Prabhakar stopped her car at a traffic signal, all the four robbers tried to smash her car. After parking her car, when she tried to reason out, the robbers abused her for not driving properly,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Vijay Kumar was quoted by news agency IANS.
Prabhakar’s attackers later fled with her wallet carrying Rs 16,000 cash, important documents and valuables including mobile phone. Prabhakar made desperate attempts to stop them from fleeing but was attacked by the criminals, who had their car parked on the other side of the road.
Kumar said that Farheen Prabhakar was an asthma patient. The scuffle with the criminals led her to collapse on the road. An army officer soon came to her rescue as he called the police and managed to note down the accused’s vehicle registration number. Police teams are trying to obtain the CCTV footage from the area to ascertain the identity of Prabhakar’s attackers
Thak thak gang has earned quite a notoriety in Delhi because of how they operate in the national capital. They usually tend to engage the person driving the vehicle into a mundane conversation, while other members of the gang attempt to steal the driver’s belongings, kept inside the car.
Farheen has acted in several films including Jaan Tere Naam and Agni Prem among others.
