The police said two miscreants had been held for snatching Rs 600 and some documents from a shopkeeper in Sector 28. Complainant Rampal Sharma (62) alleged he went to his shop to clean it early morning on September 10 when three miscreants riding a scooter barged in and snatched Rs 600 from him, besides assaulting him.

A case was registered at Sector 26 police station. During the investigation, the accused, identified as Kuldeep (24), alias Munna, of Raipur Khurd, and Vishal (20), alias Nodi, of Maloya, were arrested. The third accused is absconding.
