Srinagar, September 11

Three persons from Delhi have been arrested in connection with the alleged burglary of mobile phones from Srinagar and items worth Rs 26 lakh recovered from them, the police said today.

The SSP, Srinagar, Haseeb Mughal, addressing a press conference here, said the investigation of the case went on for two months.

The SSP said a shopkeeper from Gojwara, Mohammad Amir Malik, had lodged an FIR in the Nowhatta police station on July 4 this year, saying some burglars had barged into his mobile phone shop at Gojwara and decamped with mobile phones worth lakhs of rupees.

A case was registered and investigation taken up, he said.

During the course of the investigation, the services of the FSL and electronic surveillance units were utilised, the SSP said, adding that the tower dump of the area was analysed and the IMEI numbers of the stolen mobile phones were put on surveillance.

After nearly two months, a stolen phone became active with user location in New Delhi and the SDR was found as Abdul Razaq Sheikh, a resident of JJ Colony in Bhawana in Delhi, the SSP said.

A police party arrested the accused on September 6 and 112 mobile phones were recovered from him.

The accused Razaq revealed names of his two associates as Mohammad Alamin Sheikh, alias Faggu Shiekh, and Mohammad Jahangir Sheikh, both residents of Santa Vihar New Delhi and at present in Harnag Anantnag.

Both accused were arrested and 11 stolen mobiles were recovered from their rented room. — TNS
