Men escape communal mob through sheer luck

As 2 tourists were crossing the Delhi border, an armed mob surrounded their car and questioned 'Hindu ya Mohamedan?'. It seemed like their end as they had rolled their windows down to speak to the people around and someone from the mob pulled out the car's key from ignition. Luckily, a man in his 40s snatched it from the perpetrator and threw it to them, shouting and indicating them to leave the place. The duo sped for their lives and had to enter Delhi through Haryana in order to reach their hotel. They were unhurt but left visibly shaken.
