Their main target is cash, jewellery and handbag and purse," he said.

The official said that Sharma, a native of Punjab, was arrested in 2002 in a MV theft case at Sarojini Nagar police station. Sharma is involved in more than 79 cases of robbery and snatching.

"Vishal shifted his base to Sonipat to avoid monitoring by police. He commits a crime in Delhi and immediately he rushes to Sonipat to avoid detection," DCP Koan said. Varun, a native of Sonipat, was a taxi driver. He came in contact with co-accused Vishal in 2008 and started criminal activities to earn easy money.
