A local court has held a Sector-32 resident guilty of receiving four stolen LPG cylinders and has imposed a penalty of Rs 1,000.

Rajinder Kumar was arrested on March 19, 2013 after one Jagir Singh reported four cylinders stolen from his house. The police also recovered the stolen cylinders from Kumar.

Dismissing Kumar's plea for probation, judicial magistrate Dazy Bangarh said, "The convict dishonestly received and retained stolen cylinders belonging to complainant. Taking of lenient view against convict will encourage other persons to commit such offences."
