The anti-snatching, robbery and dacoity-detection cell of the crime branch has arrested three snatchers, including one who, along with his accomplice, had robbed an Army man. The police claimed to have solved three cases of mobile phone snatching and one of robbery. 

Shewale Sandip, a sepoy in the Army, was robbed off his luggage by two boys at Hallo Majra on February 20. While one of the accused, Neetu, was nabbed by the complainant the next day, the second accused was absconding. 

Based on the complaint, a team of the crime branch, led by Inspector Amanjot Singh, initiated an investigation. The police said Vikas, alias Bunty, a resident of Nayagaon who was involved in the robbery, was arrested.

During the interrogation, Vikas revealed the names of two more persons, Monu and Ankit, both residents of Hallo Majra, who were involved in cases of mobile snatchings in the past. 

Both accused were then arrested. The police have recovered three mobile phones from the accused.
