Suspects in burglary at Kailash Satyarthi's house identified: Police

Three to four suspects involved in a burglary at child rights activist Kailash Satyarthi's house here, wherein his Nobel Prize citation and medal replica were stolen, have been identified and will be arrested soon, a police officer said on Wednesday.

Following the Monday night burglary at Satyarthi's South Delhi residence, the police have questioned local criminals, security guards and vendors but are yet to make any breakthrough.

"From the closed-circuit television footage, we have unidentified 3-4 people involved in the crime. They will be arrested soon," Deputy Commissioner of Police Romil Baniya said.

Besides the Nobel citation and the medal replica, gifts and awards received from various international organisations and heads of states, ancestral jewellery and electronic items were also stolen.

Keeping in mind the sensitivity of the matter, Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik is himself keeping an eye on the day-to-day development in the case. Sources say that the top cop has been asking for updates in the case from senior police officers.
