Police Bust A Gang Of Robbers, 2 Held With Firearms

Delhi North-East district police have nabbed two members of a gang that has been involved in armed robbery.

The gang on the prowl more particularly in the night committed robbery at gun point.

The police with this arrest claim to have solved many cases.

Acting on a tip-off, the police caught the looters identified as Safan and Chand.

The staff chasing them for long has recovered two pistols, live cartridges, one scooty and one motorbike used in the commission of crime.

Lately, this is the same gang which robbed a businessman in his Model Town house. This crime syndicate has had many cases including robbing of a chemist shop in New Friends' Colony. The gang caught on CCTV on numerous occasions had long been giving the police sleepless nights. Feeling the pressure mounting persistently, the police resorted to chasing them. The district's Special Staff received secret information that these criminals would be coming to Khajuri (Northeast), the police laid a trap and nabbed them from there. The police are hunting for the third member of the gang, Rehman who is still at large. They all wore caps to mask a part of their identity so as to avoid being caught on a CCTV cam.

It revealed that the city police have arrested them earlier in connection with incidents of loot.

They, for some time, had been running judicial custody and were released in the month of May this year. They formed a gang and chose an area on the periphery of Delhi. They went there in an autorickshaw, robbed a scooty or mobike somewhere nearby and went on a looting spree using the robbed vehicle. They whipped out a pistol promptly while executing the crime.
