The frequent occurrences of snatching mobile phones and jewelry on Delhi roads especially in the posh areas of South Delhi or the busy streets of Central Delhi have taken the tally of such crimes on a serious note.

On May 27th, 2018, Daryaganj police station of Central Delhi arrested two thieves who would target and snatch only iPhones, with the reason of getting better sale price outside Delhi. The gang used to carry out the crime of pickpocketing and theft in Delhi's posh areas, metros and malls.

The modus operandi of the gang was to sell the stolen iPhones to Nepal, Bangladesh and Naxal hit areas so that the police could not trace it and they would get good money out of it.

This act attracts section 379 of the Indian Penal Code, which prescribes the punishment for theft, i.e., imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to three years, or with fine, or with both.

After receiving intelligence information, a team of Daryaganj police station caught two members of the gang from the Pataudi house area of Central Delhi zone. The names of these two snatchers are Shahzad and Nizam.
