The city police on Tuesday arrested four men wanted in more than 10 cases of snatching, dacoity and robbery. They were produced in a local court on Tuesday.
“The Crime Investigation Agency (CIA) acted on a tip-off and arrested the men when they were planning another crime in New Palam Vihar,” said DCP (crime) Rajesh Duggal.

The men were arrested by inspector Anand Kumar.
The police also recovered a knife and two iron rods.
During interrogation, the accused said they targeted auto passengers or persons known to be carrying cash.
