The Belarus tourist informed her husband who was waiting for her outside the monument in a car about the snatching. Both then went to the nearby Nizamuddin police station and lodged a complain.
Since the matter was related to a foreign national, the Delhi Police soon formed teams and soon, the cops got their first clue when some local informers told police that they have seen one Abdul Samad, a bad character of the area, running away with the camera. The information was developed soon and the cops arrested both the accused Abdul Samad and Salman from Nizamuddin. Samad has atleast six cases registered against him in the area.
