Gurugram Police nab 2 for committing late night robberies

Both residents of Kadipur village

Gurugram, Feb. 8 (Delhi Crown): The Gurugram Police have nabbed two jobless youths, both residents of Kadipur village, for allegedly looting shopkeepers and roadside vendors late in the night.

The suspects, identified as Krishna (21) and Bharat Singh (27), used to spend the money looted on leading a lavish lifestyle and were now planning to buy an SUV.

Police said the duo targeted commuters travelling at night, majorly on roads connecting to other districts, and robbed them of their belongings and cash at gunpoint.

According to the police, on Sunday they received a complaint from one Manoj Kumar, a resident of Sector 10-A, who alleged that on the previous night three men on a motorbike came to his makeshift shop, assaulted him, and robbed him at gunpoint. He has been selling slippers near Hero Honda Chowk for the last six years.

ACP (Crime) Preet Pal Sangwan said that the shopkeepers alleged that similar incidents had been taking place in the area, and most of them had been the handiwork of the same gang.

“After registering a case, we handed over the investigation to the crime unit and they arrested two suspects from Kadipur Chowk early Monday morning,” he said.

Police said they recovered one country-made pistol, one mobile phone and ₹1,500 from their possession.

Sangwan said the suspects formed a gang last year and started intercepting vehicles late at night and robbed commuters but they hardly received any complaints.

“They used to assault victims and threatened them for life. Recently they had started targeting street vendors and forcefully snatched their belongings and money. They had robbed at least seven vendors in the past three days,” he said.

During questioning, the suspects confessed to the crime and said they were jobless and were facing financial problems following which they took to crime to maintain their lifestyle. “They used to spend money on a lavish lifestyle and buying clothes. They wanted to buy an SUV for which they were collecting money through criminal activities.

According to police, there were already cases registered against Bharat in Sector 10A police station for an attempt to murder and a kidnapping case was registered in Delhi last year. He was evading arrest, added the police.
