Upset with boss, two staff steal memory cards worth Rs 24 lakh

New Delhi: Not satisfied with the attitude of their employer, two staff members of a company hatched a robbery plan and fled with multimedia memory cards (MMCs) of the company but their plan failed and they were arrested near Pacific Mall in west Delhi's Tagore Garden area.
Delhi Police said on Monday that the two accused were identified as Mohit Sharma and Milan Mishra, both 25 years old.
With the arrest of the duo, seven packets containing 24,000 MMCs were recovered.
The MMCs worth about Rs 24 lakh were imported from Singapore by the complainant.
The police claimed that on February 2, the accused were arrested on the basis of an information that they would come near BSES office behind Pacific Mall to dispose of memory cards.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Vijay Kumar said on Monday that they were employed with a company, Solutions, in Karol Bagh which deals in memory cards since 2014.
They were not satisfied with the attitude of the owner as he never gave any increment, nor did he give the salary on time.
They were also inspired by a previous incident committed by another employee, who had stolen memory cards in a similar fashion but the employer did not make any complaint.
"Encouraged by that incident, both of them planned to steal a the high-value consignment," said the senior police official.
The police further claimed that on December 22, 2017, on the direction of their employer, they went to the courier office to bring consignment of MMCs and found the consignment to be of high-value, i.e. around Rs 24 lakh.
The value of consignment led the two to think that this is the right consignment which they were looking for and as per their plan, they took the delivery and fled away.
Since that day, they left Delhi and were roaming from one place to another for disposing of these memory cards, but they could not find any customer who could purchase the MMCs at their desired price.
