Fed up of having the police constantly visit her home, the wife of a repeat offender helped the police in nabbing him on Saturday. The 24-year-old was arrested from Mira Road after his wife told the police where he was hiding.

Samunnaem Ansari, a resident of Malad, has several cases of robbery and house breaking registered against him because of which the police would visit his place frequently.

On Saturday, the police had gone to check on Ansari regarding a house break-in in Tardeo.

They had strong evidence against him, claimed the police.

An officer from Tardeo police station said, “Ansari was involved in the criminal activities which his wife did not approve of. She also wanted to have a baby but did not want the child to be affected by Ansari’s criminal activities. So she got him arrested to make him give up his bad ways.”

He added, “She called her husband and asked him to meet her at Mira Road and then gave us details of the location. We laid a trap and nabbed him.”

Ansari has been booked for trespassing and breaking and entering, and stealing from houses. He was produced at a Girgaum court and remanded in judicial custody.
