The staff of south east district's Amar Colony police station arrested three snatchers and worked out a number of cases. The police from those arrested persons namely Nagender 19 years and Sunil Negi 21 years (third juvenile) recovered two motorbikes, five cellphones, two ladies bags containing watches and an ATM card and one country made pistol with two cartridges.

Taking the gravity of such cases on the rise, a special Anti-Snatching team led by SHO Amar Colony inspector Anant Gunjan with SI Ishvar Singh and HC Ramprasad with others was constituted under the supervision of Govind Sharma ACP sub-division Kalkaji.

The patrolling in the area was stepped on and the pickets were mounted up. All the suspected bike riders in the area were duly verified.

Following a tip-off, a trap was laid near National Heart Institute, East of Kailash. The police team erected a picket and started vehicle checking. Three persons were seen riding on a white colour Apache motorcycle. The police team flagged them down, they speed up instead of stopping and even tried to flee the scene.

However, the alert picket staff apprehended the riders at the picket.

When verified it was found that the Apache motorcycle was found stolen from PS Sangam Vihar vide FIR no. 11846/19, under Sections 379 and 411 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860.  Accordingly, a case vide FIR No. 114/19, under Sections 25, 54, 59 and 411 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, was registered at PS Amar Colony. "When interrogated, they are found to be addicted to drinking and smoking cannabis, in order to feed their addictions they took to crime. The accused Sunil Negi was previously arrested in 23 and Nagender in 13 cases of theft, snatching and robbery. They basically used stolen bikes to commit crimes. They used the weapon to frighten the victim in case of protest or resistance," District Police chief Chinmoy Biswal spoke.
