Friday, February 4, 2011

NEW DELHI - The Delhi Police have arrested two men for their alleged involvement in three robberies in west Delhi, police said Friday.

The arrested are Mohammad Afjal and Sual, both aged 22 years.

“Afjal is an aspiring self-styled don and both of them are habitual offenders and have been arrested many times,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) V. Rengnathan.

They were held on a complaint filed by Vijay Bhargav, 62, from Samrat Apartment in Vasundhara Enclave.

Bhargav told police that when he was returning home from a marriage with his family at around 1.00 a.m. Monday, he had stopped his car near Zakhira flyover after noticing some noise from the vehicle’s back side.

Meanwhile, the accused along with four-five people attacked him and his family with knives and sticks and took away five gold rings, Rs.5,000 cash and two mobile phones.

Following an input that the duo will meet their associates near Zakhira Jhuggi at around 10.00 p.m. Thursday to commit crime, police conducted a raid and apprehended them and recovered a knife, a gold ring and a mobile phone.

During interrogation, they confessed to robberies. They told police that they were born in slums and despite working very hard they did not earn enough and the lust for money attracted them towards crime.

“Both the accused were arrested in cases of robberies and snatching,” said Rengnathan.
