Sector 27 robbery: 2 main suspects nailed, spent lavishly in Kasol

Rs 40K recovered | Now all 4 in police net

Chandigarh, September 17

The two main suspects, who had allegedly robbed a model-turned-actress at her house in Sector 27, have been arrested. They had fled to Kasol, Himachal Pradesh, after committing the crime and lavishly spent the robbed money. With their arrest, all four suspects involved in the crime are now in police net.

The two suspects in the custody of the UT police.

A joint team, led by Inspector Jasbir Singh, SHO of the Sector 26 police station, and Inspector Amanjot Singh, in-charge of the operation cell, nabbed the suspects, Arjun (27), a resident of Shahi Majra village, Mohali, who had delivered furniture at the victim’s house a few days before the crime, and the other, also named Arjun (24), a resident of Mataur, from near the ISBT, Sector 43. The police recovered Rs40,000 from them.

Both suspects went to Phase I, Mohali, after the crime where they purchased new clothes and shoes. They then went to Sector 52, where they stayed at a hotel for a few hours. They then boarded a bus from Sector 43 and went

to Kasol, where they stayed at an expensive hotel. Both suspects got tattoos and their hair dyed. The police said, “The suspects spent lavishly by checking into an expensive hotel and hiring cabs to visit different places near Kasol.”

On September 7, the victim was alone at her house when three suspects, who had their faces covered, barged into the house. The victim was kept hostage at knifepoint and robbed of Rs6 lakh and another Rs20,000, which a suspect withdrew from her account using her ATM card. The police scrutinised the CCTV footage and showed it to the victim, which helped in identifying one of the suspects, Arjun.
