Indian-origin kid attacked by robbers in Britain

Jan 31 2013, 8:10am CST | by

London, Jan 31 (IANS) A nine-year-old boy from an Indian-origin family was left terrified when robbers held an axe to his neck and demanded his family hand over their car, a media report said Thursday.

London, Jan 31 — A nine-year-old boy from an Indian-origin family was left terrified when robbers held an axe to his neck and demanded his family hand over their car, a media report said Thursday.

Rajinder Auluk, the child's 40-year-old father, said his son was so badly affected by the attack that he no longer wants to live in the house and fears the men will return to kill him and his family, The Sun reported.

Detectives launched a public appeal for help to catch the robbers, who struck at the Auluk family home in Great Barr in West Midlands.

They demanded car keys and cash as they threatened Auluk's youngest child in front of him and his 45-year-old wife Baljit, and their 16-year-old son Jay.

"We had just finished eating when my nine-year-old son went into the front room to get ready to watch wrestling on the TV," said Auluk, a self-employed property developer.

"I heard a loud crash at the front door and suddenly an explosion hit me in the face as these men with axes and sledgehammers came piling through the door."

"I said, 'take what you want', but they carried on shouting and held an axe to my youngest's neck," Auluk said.

"It was true panic. I was angry and frightened, but my main concern was what they were going to do to the little guy, I thought he was going to cut him."

The men tried to get away in both family cars -- a Nissan Pulsar GTR and a Mercedes CLK -- but abandoned the Mercedes on the road outside the home.

Police were at the scene in five minutes but despite an extensive search of the area were unable to trace the attackers.

Detective Constable Derek Cole of West Midlands Police, who is leading the inquiry, called on the public to come forward with any information.

"We have got to find the people responsible for this robbery," he said.

"This was a truly horrendous ordeal for the family and it's hard to imagine what they went through," Cole told the daily.

"The thieves knew exactly what they were after -- they wanted the family's car and didn't care who they harmed in the process."

"They had complete disregard for the victims, holding an axe to a young boy's neck in front of his terrified family."

Scottish Independence Could Indirectly Lead To The End Of Britain's Nuclear Arsenal

Sep 17 2014 4:32pm CDT | Source: Business Insider

A Scottish vote to leave the United Kingdom on Thursday could ultimately lead to the end of the country's nuclear arsenal, which consists of 225 warheads. The UK's nuclear deterrent is currently housed in western Scotland — and if the newly independent Scots decide to banish the UK's major nuclear base London could decide that the weapons are simply too expensive and impractical to retain. Britain was the third country in the world to develop a nuclear capability. ...

Ace Poll Forecaster: If Scotland Votes Overwhelmingly 'No,' It Might Be Because Of The Queen

Sep 17 2014 10:50am CDT | Source: Business Insider

Over the past week, the polls leading up to the Scottish referendum on Thursday have held remarkably steady. Each of the past four polls has the "no" vote at 52%, while "yes" for independence has hovered at 48%.  The "yes" vote has gained considerable momentum over the past month, but at least for the moment, it appears that it has halted. And if things continue to turn and the "no" vote ends up winning by a considerable amount, one electoral pr ...
