New Delhi, June 3

A 37-year-old employee of a jewellery shop was arrested along with a relative of his for allegedly faking a robbery of Rs 34 lakh in southwest Delhi's Kishangarh area, the police said on Saturday.

According to police, a man was reportedly robbed at gunpoint on Thursday around 11.15 pm of Rs 34.48 lakh in Kishangarh.

Chander Sekhar Chaudhary in his complaint to the police said he worked at a jewellery shop in Malviya Nagar, a senior police

officer said.

The robbery later turned out to be staged and police arrested Chaudhary, a resident of Chirag Dilli and a 20-year-old Manish from Geeta Colony JJ Indra Camp for orchestrating it.

The police found that around 3.15 pm Thursday the owner of the shop had asked Chaudhary to collect Rs 30 lakh cash from a person and Rs 4.48 lakh from another ornament maker in Karol Bagh. Chaudhary collected the money, kept it in his scooter, and left for Malviya Nagar around 9.30 pm.

Chaudhary in his complaint alleged that when he reached near Jia Sarai, two persons on a motorcycle showed him a pistol and one of them snatched his bag, the officer said.

The police noticed Chaudhary was constantly changing his statements. When questioned more sternly, he confessed to having staged the robbery, Deputy Commissioner of Police (southwest) Manoj C said.
