Jeweller, five others arrested for robberies in Central Delhi
Five persons and a jeweller have been arrested in connection with several robbery cases in Central Delhi and a huge amount of stolen goods, including melted silver, were recovered from them, police said on Sunday.
The five – Mossim, Yusuf, Shahid, Sajid and Anwar – were arrested on October 13 from near the Anand Vihar Railway Station on the basis of a tip-off that a gang of robbers would be coming there to travel to their native place.
The accused admitted to have committed many burglaries and were also involved in other such cases lodged at different police stations in Delhi, police said.
At their instance, jeweller Rajesh Kumar Soni was also arrested and over 3kg of melted silver was recovered from him, police said. The police said Soni, who ran a jewellery shop in Ghaziabad, had purchased stolen jewellery from the five at cheaper rates to be sold at profitable margins.
Apart from the silver, over Rs 15,000 stolen cash, three laptops, three LED TVs, 21 mobiles, a digital camera, some silver jewellery and coins, wrist watches and wi-fi devices were also recovered from the possession of the accused.
