Noor Kaleem, who lives in Salarpur here, was on his way along with an aide on an e-rickshaw to the Ghazipur market at around 5.30 am when the incident took place, police said.
"Kaleem and Irfan were near the Sector 78 drain when the bike-borne men stopped them midway. When the trader resisted to their moves, one of the two men pointed a gun at him. Thus, forcing him to give them the money," a police official said, citing the complaint.
"The assailants fled with the money and also took away the mobile phones of Kaleem and Irfan," he said.
Later, Kaleem with the help of a passerby alerted police, which relayed the information to other police units on duty in the city but the assailants could not be caught.
