A trader and two of his friends were arrested in connection with a robbery at an exporter’s house in the national capital, police said today.

Trader Mohmaad Shakir (30) had allegedly planned the robbery to get back at Vijay Gupta, who had cancelled an order of handicrafts to be supplied by Shakir and defaulted in paying his dues, a senior police official said. “Gupta had cancelled some supply orders at the eleventh hour, while the goods were ready for delivery, which caused Shakir heavy losses and despite promises when Gupta did not give the outstanding dues, he decided to teach him a lesson,” the official said.
