DU student among five held for robbery
Five persons, including a Delhi University student and an employee of a businessman, were arrested for robbing Rs 33 lakh here at Vikas Marg, in East Delhi, police said on Monday.
Police identified the accused as Harsheet (19), a B Com student of Delhi University; Sonu Malik (20), a professional bike stuntman; Mohan (28), Iilayash (34) and Devender Kumar (42), a businessman’s employee — all residents of different areas of Nabi Karim (Central Delhi) and Karawal Nagar (East Delhi). Police have recovered Rs 33 lakh and a motorcycle used in the crime from those arrested.
Police said Devender, an employee of a businessman, who worked in Gandhi Nagar, had lodged a complaint with the police that he was robbed of Rs 33 lakh by two bike-borne persons at Vikas Marg on Friday night when he came to hand over the cash to a businessman along with his colleague, Neeraj.
“During investigation, Devender came under suspicion for changing his statements many times. Later, after sustained interrogation, he confessed that he had made a plan last month to rob his employer’s cash with the help of his associates,” DCP Rishipal said.
