The Model Town police have arrested three Iranians, including a woman, on the charge of stealing Rs 11,000 from a shop. The three had come from Delhi to visit various places and fled the spot after committing the crime three days ago.

In his complaint to the police, Sodhi Verma, a resident of Mandhera village, said a man and a woman came to his shop and asked for contact lenses.

They selected a pair of lenses priced Rs 850. They gave him Rs 2,000 note and when he was about to return the balance, the man started asking for notes of smaller denominations and the woman started asking him for some other items. Meanwhile, the man stole some currency notes from his cash box on the pretext of asking for smaller notes. After their departure, when he counted the cash, Rs 11,000 were missing.

On Tuesday, a boy working at the said shop was going to Jalandhar when he spotted the said people near Kathar and informed the police. With the help of shopkeepers the police arrested the trio. — OC
