On July 8th 2019, Four men were arrested for allegedly robbing a security guard of a government hospital in Dwarka’s Chhawla area.
The accused, identified as Devendar (25), Vikram (26), Somdutt Sharma (34) and Iqbal (22) were nabbed on Monday from Najafgarh. The accused had robbed the security guard after offering him lift in their car.
The incident took place on July 6th, when the victim was waiting for a bus. A cab with 4 people arrived and offered him a lift to Mahipalpur for Rs 20, the police said.
“On the way to Mahipalpur, they forcibly took away his wallet, which had Rs 11,000, ATM card, some essential documents and a mobile phone. He was later dropped near Deenpur Mod,” said Anto Alphonse, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Dwarka).
The accused were identified by analyzing CCTV footage. The police first nabbed Devender from the BDO office in Najafgarh. One country made pistol and two live cartridges were recovered from his possession. The other three associates of Devender were also arrested later. The vehicle used to rob the security guard was also seized, the senior officer said.
During the interrogation, Devendar told the police that he and his associates used to rob people to meet their drug and alcohol expenses. He disclosed that they usually used to hang out in areas near Najafgarh and targeted one person at a time. After offering lift, they used to rob the victims by threatening them and later dropping them at an isolated place, the officer added.
