IN A major breakthrough, the police have nabbed five members of an international gang who were responsible for the two recent dacoities at Vijay Nagar and Tulsi Nagar. All the accused hail from Bangladesh, and had been staying illegally in Delhi.
Three of the gang members are yet to be arrested and have reportedly fled to Bangladesh. Apart from Indore police, Delhi police, STF Bihar and Crime Branch Kolkata gave assistance to nab the accused. Apart from the police team in Delhi two other police teams have also been sent to Katihar (Bihar) and Kolkata to nab other gang members.
SP Adarsh Katiyar said that the arrested are yet to be brought to Indore, but they expect that this gang or a splinter of this gang might be responsible for the various loots and dacoities that have been occurring in the City during the past year or so. The Indore police team bringing them to the City told senior officials over phone that some of the mobiles looted in some of other loots have been recovered from the gang members.
From what the Indore police could find out in the limited interrogation so far, all the accused were staying at a rented house behind Mayur Hospital. They had told the house owner they were working as goldsmiths at Sarafa and therefore often had to work during the nighttime. Though the gang members stayed in the same house (in different rooms) they rarely interacted with each other in public and met at neutral place.
They used to go walk to the house they had targeted and then after locking the inmates inside the bathroom or any other room, used to walk back to their rented house. After committing the loot, they used to stay in the City for two to three days and then leave for Delhi, and thence to Bangladesh. They disposed the stolen items in Bangladesh and also locally.
The arrested are Mohammad Sultan (23) resident of Bangladesh, at present staying at Jaunpur (New Delhi); Kamal alias Nazrul (18) resident of Bangladesh, at present staying at Jaunpur; Mohammad Sultan alias Fukan (23) resident of Bangladesh, now residing at Noida (New Delhi); Iliyas (19) resident of Bangladesh, now residing at Jaunpur and Munir also resident of Bangladesh at present staying at Jaunpur. Police are still on the look out for Lal Mohammad alias Lalu Rayees alias Bholu, Kamal alias Iqbal and Kalam.
