Police have arrested a 22-year-old man and detained his minor brother for allegedly robbing Rs 2.5 lakh from his relative's house, officials said on Tuesday. The accused has been identified as Pradyumna, a resident of Bihar's Chapra district, he said, adding that he also helped the victim register an e-FIR.
Police said a woman had lodged a complaint of dacoity in broad daylight at her house on May 17. In the FIR, a resident of Wazirabad said that she had gone to a ghat on the Yamuna river here on May 16 to take a holy dip on Buddha Purnima, police said. A senior police officer said that after taking a bath, the complainant went to her relative's house, while her three daughters returned home.
He told that in the afternoon his eldest daughter went to the market while the other daughter went to study tuition. In the afternoon a boy came to their house, met his youngest daughter, and gave her ₹ 100 to get a cold drink from a nearby shop. When the girl left, the boy stole a bag worth Rs 2.5 lakh, a pair of gold earrings, and a gold pendant and left the house, the officer said.
During the investigation, the police analyzed footage from over 20 CCTV cameras in the area, identified some suspects, and showed it to the complainant. Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Sagar Singh Kalsi said he identified the suspects as his relative Pradyumna and his younger brother.
Police on Sunday arrested the man from Gurgaon with the help of a picture on his WhatsApp profile showing a terrace in the background, the DCP said. Pradyumna told the police that being a distant relative of the victim, he used to visit the house frequently and knew that Rs 2.5 lakh was kept to be paid to buy a plot of land, Mr. Kalsi said.
The accused called his brother from his native place in Bihar on May 15 and planned the robbery. Police said Pradyumna also got his younger brother's head shaved. The DCP said that on the day of the incident, the younger brother of the accused entered the house, gave Rs 100 to the 10-year-old girl to bring cold drinks, and ran away with a bag full of Rs 2.5 lakh and gold jewelry. Pradyumna and his brother had gone to Gurgaon. Police said the accused then gave ₹13,000 to his brother, who had returned to his native village on May 17. The juvenile was also arrested on Monday, police said, adding that ₹ 1.47 lakh, a pair of gold earrings, and a gold pendant were recovered from his possession.
