Dhan Singh Bisht, former servant for the head of a Delhi-based chemicals company, was carrying over $100,000 of his boss’ money to deposit in a company bank account when he was ambushed by a gang of robbers in 2015.
His attackers were armed with knives and tried to slit Mr. Bisht’s throat, however the 37-year-old was able to fight them off and save his employer’s cash.
Following the assault, Bisht required 14 stitches and was left bed-bound during his recovery.
His employer was so delighted, he decided that this loyal servant deserved a reward — so he gave him a T-shirt.
Although it’s the thought that counts … a T-shirt was not exactly the type of reward that Bisht had in mind for putting his life on the line in defense of someone else’s money.
Nevertheless, Bisht stayed with the company over the next few years. He never got over the viewed slight of being given a crummy T-shirt, rather than a cash bonus.
The servant was entrusted frequently with depositing huge sums of cash on behalf of the firm, and when he stumbled upon his own money woes he enlisted a buddy for an ultimate plot to get revenge on his employer.
With spiraling debts and having recently been declined a loan from his employer, Bisht recruited drinking pal Yakub Hasan, 37, to assist him in robbing the chemicals company.
The bandits decided that the next time Bisht was given a large amount of money to deposit, he would decamp with the cash and Hasan, who owned a vehicle, would help him flee to the scenic Indian resort town of Nainital, where the two would lie low for a while.
On August 27. Bisht was sent to collect $96,000 (70 lahk rupees) from a client, which he was to promptly deposit in a Delhi bank.
Instead, he kept the money and Hasan drove him to Nainital.
Yet, Hasan was swiftly picked up by police on his return, and failed to explain how he came by the $410 (3 lahk rupees) deposited in his bank account by Bisht.
As an initial payment for his assistance, he rapidly turned his confidant in to the cops. Bisht was arrested in Burari Sunday night, after returning to the capital and rening a house in the district.
Police recovered around $69,000 (50 lahk rupees) from the exquisitely furnished property the one-time hero turned thief was renting. Both suspects are now awaiting trial.
