Two men were arrested for allegedly robbing an elderly after barging into his home in northwest Delhi's Ashok Vihar, police said Thursday.

The accused -- Karan (20) and Amit Kumar (19) -- were nabbed and a motorcycle used in commission of the crime was recovered from their possession, the police said.

In his complaint, Gupta reported that three men aged about 20-22 years robbed him of around Rs 1 lakh, some silver coins and important documents from an almirah after entering into his home as the main door was left open, Deputy Commissioner of Police (northwest) Vijayanta Arya said.
