Delhi Police arrested two men and a minor for snatching a woman’s purse in Delhi’s Janakpuri. One of the men said he is a professional boxer and had earlier won a gold medal.
The two men were identified as Aniket (19), a resident of Haryana, and Shivam Kumar (19), who lives in Delhi’s Jharoda Kalan.
The incident came to light when a woman filed a complaint at the BHD Nagar Police Station on August 1 that three unidentified individuals who were on a motorcycle snatched her phone and fled while she was on her way home.
A police team initiated an investigation into the case and checked CCTV footage from the spot where the incident took place. After conducting a manual surveillance, the team on August 4 apprehended the three boys who were caught riding a bike.
The police recovered the stolen phone while conducting a search and seized the bike used while committing the crime.
During interrogation, Ankit and Shivam also disclosed their involvement in other snatching cases which they committed on the same day as the phone snatching incident.
Police said that they are still verifying Aniket’s claim of being a professional boxer.
