The police have arrested three burglars with the help of a CCTV camera that captured them in the act at a school in Pitampura.

The police recovered three cooking gas cylinders and an amplifier music system from the arrested burglars.

The arrested burglars have been identified as Lal Babu aka Badshah, Santosh Kumar and Shivji Pashwan. All of them hail from Bihar.

With their arrest, the police claimed to have solved two more burglary cases reported in northwest Delhi.

P Karunakaran, DCP (northwest), said the arrests came following investigation into a burglary complaint received at the Maurya Enclave police station on November 26.

"It was found that three cooking gas cylinders and a music system of SD Public School, BU-Block Pitampura, were stolen by some unknown persons. A case was registered and investigation was conducted," said Karunakaran.

During investigation, Karunakaran said, it was learnt that a CCTV installed in the school premises had captured the movements of the suspected burglars. The CCTV footage was developed and police finally apprehended the accused.
