HIGHLIGHTS

  • Three criminals were arrested by the Delhi Police on Thursday
  • They were involved in robbing a Karol Bagh-based gold trader at gunpoint
  • Police had issued a total cash reward of Rs 1.5 lakh for information leading to their capture
A team from the Delhi Police Special Cell arrested three robbers who were involved in heinous crimes. Each of them had a Rs 50,000 cash reward for information leading to their arrest.

The accused were identified as Pramod Yadav, Manipal and Deepak. All three were involved in a number of heinous crimes including murder, attempt to murder, dacoity, and robbery. They were involved in a case of armed robbery in Delhi’s Karol Bagh, where they looted 2 gold bricks weighing one kilogram each at gunpoint.

Considering the magnitude and highly adverse impact of this sensational day-light robbery, a team of Delhi Police Special Cell, began a probe into the matter.

While checking records, it was found that a similar heist had been committed in PS Geeta Colony in 2014, where 7.5 kg of gold was stolen and the accused persons were on bail.

Based on this, three desperate criminals, Ajeet, Mohammad Ikbal and Harsh, were involved in this armed gold heist. Officials recovered one looted gold brick weighing 1 kg gold and proceeds of crime worth Rs 3.2 lakhs from the accused persons.

While questioning them, officials learnt that three more accused, Pramod, Manipal aka Atul and Deepak Chauhan were also involved.

Due to the arrest of their associates, all the three wanted accused persons went underground. When the efforts failed, Delhi Police announced a cash reward of Rs 50,000 each for providing information leading to their arrest.

Four months of sustained efforts paid dividends when confidential information was received regarding the movements of all three accused.

On the intervening night of Thursday, August 12, two teams simultaneously made coordinated raids at two different locations in Ghaziabad and Hapur districts of Uttar Pradesh. All the three accused persons were arrested. Information was shared with Karol Bagh police station for further action from their end.
