New Delhi [India], Mar 23 (ANI): The Crime Branch of Delhi Police on Saturday claimed to have busted a gang of ATM burglars by apprehending two members of the gang--Narender and Deshraj. On specific inputs, they were nabbed from a government school near Nasirpur village.
The gang was busted by Special Team for Active Robbers and Snatchers (STAR-I) of the Crime Branch. The arrested duo are residents of Rohtak district in Haryana and are accused in seven cases related to ATM burglary in Delhi and NCR area.
In a press statement, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) G Ram Gopal Naik said: “Several incidents of ATM burglary have been reported in the outskirt of Delhi, Gurugram, and Rohtak. One such incident was reported in Jaffarpur Kalan area in Delhi a while back."
Acting on the complaint, a team of STAR-I kept a watch over the suspected criminals in Delhi-NCR region and after going through the modus operandi of these types of incidents, a team under the leadership of Inspector Arun Chauhan was formed to bust the gang.
