Police Nab Snatcher, Booty Recovered

A desperate snatcher who has committed a number of cases in the past has been arrested by the south-east district police's special staff. The police recovered a gold chain, 9 mobile phones, a motorbike used in execution of crime, an illegal firearm (country made pistol) with 2 live cartridges from Derik alias Monty aka Rahul 23 years of Dakshinpuri.

Sensing gravity of the crime, a team of Special Staff led by inspector Rajinder Kumar with SI Jasbir, ASI Shyamvir, ASI Ashwani and others was constituted under the supervision of ACP Jagdish Yadav.

ASI Shyamvir gathered information about a desperate snatcher. The said information was further developed and on February 27, 2019, a trap was laid near Patrol Pump, MB Road, Pul Prahladpur. At about 8:15 PM, one person was seen coming on a Splendor Motorcycle bearing number DL 3SDL 4731. The police team signalled the bike rider to stop, instead of slowing down he sped up the bike. However, the alert police staff intercepted the bike and the rider was identified as Derik. When he was searched, the police recovered the snatched items from him.

"After sustained interrogation, the accused Derik disclosed that he used to target victims on isolated roads. The accused used to snatch mobile phones and gold chains on his motorcycle. He further disclosed that he used to keep a pistol to threaten people in case of any retaliation or resistance. Derik was previously arrested in 3 cases of snatching. He sold the snatched mobiles to passersby at cheap rates," Chinmoy Biswal DCP district police chief spoke.

A First Information Report (FIR) has been registered against the accused under Section 25 of the Arms Act, 1959, at PS Pul Prahladpur.
