A man was arrested after the police traced him in Bihar's Sitamarhi district who has been involved in various high profile robberies in south east Delhi and earned him a tag of Robinhood as he also spend money in health camps in his native village.
The accused, Irfan, would walk into a posh club in Delhi and throw around money buying the most expensive food and alcohol.
He would also splurge money just to hear the song of his choice.
However, despite the high flying life, Irfan would 'give back' to his community' as he would spend his money on health camps.
This earned him the tag of 'Robinhood', as Irfan has been involved in a spate of high profile robberies and would steal gold watches and other luxury items by breaking into houses.
Irfan was arrested on July 6 after the police traced all the burglaries to Sitamarhi district in Bihar, where Irfan had been funding health camps and was also living a luxurious life style with his impressive assemblage of luxury cars, police claimed.
According to police, the case came to light on June 24, when the complainant in the case Rajeev Khanna who had reported that many of his valuables including gold ornaments worth of several lakh, were missing.
The police had traced him to his native village when they found a screen grab of the accused from a CCTV footage taken near the house of the complainant.
Even though the accused used to live a lavish lifestyle, he would commit the robberies without any shoes.
"He would operate alone and without any shoes. He was captured breaking into the house and the Nigehbaan scheme in which the police encourages the citizens to install CCTV cameras near their homes was crucial in identifying him," said DCP South East Romil Baaniya.
The accused had started breaking into posh colonies after his initial forays into cloth business ended in failure.
"We had recovered around 320 grams of stolen jewelry. We are trying to ascertain the number of houses he broke into and also recover any other stolen items," said a senior police official.
