Duo replaces mobile with soap bar, cheats delivery boy; arrested
Delhi Police arrested two persons after a courier boy of e-commerce giant Amazon alleged that the duo allegedly replaced a high-end mobile phone with a soap bar. The incident took place at East Delhi’s Madhu Vihar area. According to the police, the accused have been identified as Mohit Tomar and Robin Chauhan.
A senior police official said that on October 15, the courier boy, Manoj Thakur approached police complaining that a Samsung Note 5 which he had gone to deliver at an address of Madhu Vihar was replaced by one Rehan with a soap bar.
“The complainant said that the consignment of amazon was to be delivered at an address of Rehan
but he could not find him there. When Manoj contacted him on his mobile phone, the accused asked him to deliver the consignment at another address,” said the officer.
According to the senior police official, the complainant reached the other address where the accused took the consignment and went inside the house on the pretext of getting money. He, however, came back and returned the package saying that he does not have full amount to pay the bill. Manoj later found that the consignment was tampered with and the product was replaced with a soap bar.
“During investigation, a police team reached at the address where the complainant had met Rehan and found duo Mohit Tomar and Robin Chauhan instead,” said the officer.
The complainant identified Mohit Tomar as Rehan to whom he had delivered the package, he said.
The duo said during interrogation that Mohit was posing as Rehan and took the delivery package while Robin who was already inside the house replaced the original product with the soap bar. Further investigation is still on.
