Two nabbed for stealing from train passengers
A man and a woman have been arrested by the police for sneaking away with belongings of train passengers in air-conditioned coaches. ‘The arrestees have been identified as Mohammed Naushad, 31, and Moni Singh, 23, who were nabbed on 1 November from a coach in the Sampark Kranti Express at the New Delhi railway station,’ said Deputy Commissioner of Police S B S Tyagi. The two boarded trains at night and stole purses and other items from sleeping co-passengers, Tyagi said. Naushad booked tickets on a fake PAN card, mostly under the Tatkal quota, while Moni Singh too used to travel on a fake identity, he said. They were held after a victim lodged a complaint complaint on 30 October. ‘Naushad, who lived in Delhi, was illiterate while Moni Singh, who was from Lucknow, had post-graduate degrees in Hindi and Sanskrit,’ Tyagi added.
