Old habits die hard. The Delhi Police have arrested Jagdish, a native of Jhajjar, Haryana, and are on a lookout for his partner, Deepak, for committing a crime for which they were taken to court for a hearing.
Jagdish and Deepak, who were brought to the Saket Court Complex for their involvement in a theft case, were yet again caught stealing. Deepak, who is involved in 12 such cases, is still absconding.
According to the complainant, Manoj Kumar, he had visited the court to attend the hearing of a case. When he came out, he found his bag open and his wallet containing election card, three ATM cards, Rs 2,100 and other important documents were missing.
CCTV footages identified Jagdish and Deepak stealing the purse from Kumar’s bag. “A raid was conducted at the houses of both the accused and Jagdish was arrested,” said Chhaya Sharma, DCP (South). Deepak, who is involved in 12 cases, is still absconding. The police have recovered R1,000, two ATM cards and a metro card.
Jagdish’s father is assistant sub inspector with Haryana police while Deepak’s father is retired as Sub Inspector with the Delhi Police.
