Three boys held for burglary
Three boys were apprehended for allegedly burgling a leather bag shop in central Delhi two weeks ago, police said on Sunday.
The minors had allegedly stolen Rs 30 lakh cash from the shop along with at least 15 bags, Devesh Srivastava, Additional Commissioner of Police (Central), said.
During investigation, he said, it came to light that some boys were lavishly spending money beyond their financial capacity. On this, the police team along with a juvenile officer apprehended three minors in the age group of 16-17 years.
At their instance, Rs 19.23 cash, a motorcycle, three mobile phones and 15 school bags were recovered.
"They had distributed the stolen money among themselves and went to their houses. They also purchased a motorcycle for R 70,000 and three mobile phones for R 24,000," Srivastava said.
The gang leader is at large and efforts are being made to apprehend him.
