The kingpin of their gang, identified as Farman, is behind the bars in Tihar Jail of Delhi while he had been operating the gang even after being in jail," said Shlok Kumar, Superintendent of Police (city), Ghaziabad.
Elaborating the Modus Operandi, kumar said that the gang first used to get details of renowned showrooms of the area through internet and keep a watch for a day or two before committing the robbery.
"The gang members used luxury cars to wander around the showrooms and get all the details they need. Later in night, they enter the targeted shop with the help of cutters and other equipments and commit robbery. They also used to take away the DVR of CCTV cameras at the shop which had made it difficult to identify them. The stolen jewellery and goods were then sold out online and at weekly markets in other states with the help of their female gang member," added Kumar. The officer further said that nearly a dozen cases of robbery and attempt to murder are registered against the gang in various police stations of Delhi and NCR regions. Police have recovered Rs 15 lakh cash, jewellery worth Rs 15 lakh, 4 luxury cars, a sports motorcycle and cutting equipments used in robbery from the possession of accused persons.
