With the arrest of 5 burglars, the south-east district police claim to have busted a gang of battery thieves and solved about 2 dozens of cases of theft. The gang would target cars, e-rickshaws and tempos. Those 5 arrested have been identified as Sohail 22 years, Sahne Alam alias Jagga 23 years, Imran 30 years, Shahzad 25 years and Jameel Ahmed 45 years.

Jaitpur and Kalindi Kunj have hit the headlines for battery thievery for quite some time. The police took it on a serious note and acted before it was too late.

A team comprising inspector Rajesh, ASI Bhoop Singh led by SHO inspector Vijay Pal Dahiya under the supervision of Gursewak Singh, ACP sub-division Badarpur was formed.

Patrolling and picketing in the area were accelerated sensing gravity of the crime on the rise.

CCTV footage helped the police get to the arrest.

Following a tip-off, the police arrested Imran who denied the involvement but confessed to the crime when confronted with the facts. At his instance, the rest were also arrested with one scrap dealer who bought the stolen batteries from the gang.

"They would carry out a detailed reconnaissance before finally executing the crime. A second hand Santro car was used in the commission of the crime. They would recce in the day time, select the target and commit the crime in the night. From their possession, we have recovered 76 batteries. They used to steal 15 to 20 batteries a night, a fixed routine. They would sell these stolen batteries to the receiver between rupees 500 and 2000. They used a particular lingo code like Bori for the battery, chhoti or badi batteries. They have a criminal past. The case has been registered and further probe is on," Chinmoy Biswal DCP south-east district spoke.
