A student foiled an attempt to loot him after he was attacked and threatened by a man at gunpoint on Sunday near a petrol pump in Delhi's Shahdara.

Karan Chowdhary, who has been praised for his brave attempt, said he left for his institute at 6 am on Sunday and stopped his bike midway to fill petrol, according to news agency ANI. When he moved a few steps ahead from the petrol pump, he was attacked by a man who asked for his motorcycle's keys at gunpoint.

A CCTV footage showed that Mr Chowdhary did his best to thwart the attack by the man.

"He asked me to give him my bike keys but I refused to do so. I stepped down from my bike and ran away from the spot to seek help from people at the petrol pump; they all refused to help and went away from there and locked themselves in a room," the student said.
