Police have arrested four men, including a civil engineering student, who used to target houses in south Delhi and steal valuables and fancy gadgets to flaunt in front of their girlfriends and later sell these articles to earn a easy money. A number of valuables, including laptops, TV and a bike used by the gang have been recovered.

The accused, who were arrested by a team of Anti-Auto Theft Squad, southeast district, have been identified as Mohammad Faim (24), Mohammad Naim (23), Rahul Sharma (35) and the civil engineer, Raza-ul-Mustafa (22).

The gang was busted following a stringent crackdown on burglaries in the south-east district after a number of cases were reported. DCP southeast, Chinmoy Biswal said that following a tip-off, a police laid a trap and three men, Rahul, Naim and Faim were intercepted when they were transporting a TV and few laptops on a bike.

"On questioning, the trio could not give appropriate answers and were detained. During interrogation, they revealed their involvement in burglaries and also unveiled details of their fourth associate Mustafa, a civil engineering student. He was also arrested and it was found that all of them had past criminal records. They revealed that they were addicted to alcohol and ganja, and to meet their needs they started committing theft and burglaries. They also wanted to maintain a lavish lifestyle and spent money on their girlfriends to impress them," the DCP added.

Biswal said that Naim used to work as a whitewash painter and around 4-5 years ago became friends with the other two, while Mustafa is a neighbour of Faim. "To earn easy money, they planned to commit burglaries in the night by breaking doors or sneaking through windows to enter the locked houses and shops. They used to cover their face to avoid being caught in CCTV cameras. The accused used to later sell these laptops and other articles at Nehru Place," the officer stated.
