Two B.Tech students, who entered the world of crime after losing a lot of money in cricket betting, have been arrested by the Delhi Police for allegedly committing a theft at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in south Delhi.

The accused have been identified as Bhagat Singh and Shashwat Biswal, sons of employees of IIT-Delhi. They are pursuing second year B.Tech from a private college, the police said.

On March 14, Singh and Biswal had allegedly stolen three credit cards, PAN card, identity card and purse from the office of Vyjayanti Raghavan, an Associate Professor in JNU’s School of Language, Literature and Culture Study, where she teaches Korean, the police said.

“They were found in suspicious circumstances near a teacher’s room and were spotted by Raghavan, who identified them and raised an alarm,” said a police officer, adding that Raghavan’s belongings were stolen from her office when she had gone out for five minutes.
