Ludhiana, February 25

The Ludhiana police claimed to have busted a gang of snatchers and arrested three of its members. The police also recovered 25 mobile phones, a sharp weapon and a motorcycle from the suspects. The phones were being looted by the gang from city residents and the seized motorcycle was being used for committing snatching incidents.

The suspects have been identified as Arvinder Singh of New Azad Nagar, Kamaljit Singh of Preet Nagar and Ajay Kumar of Basant Nagar.

ASI Gurdeep Singh said on February 24, when he along with the police party were conducting a patrolling near the bus stand to keep a tab over anti-social elements, he received a tip-off that Arvinder and Kamaljit were running a gang of snatchers. After looting valuables, both suspects used to sell the same to their gang member Ajay Kumar.

As per information, both suspects were on the way to sell looted mobile phones to Ajay. The police party laid a naka at a strategic place where their motorcycle was stopped and the duo were caught, the ASI said.

Later, during the questioning of the suspects, whereabouts of the Ajay were known and he was also arrested. Twentyfive mobile phones were recovered from the suspects, the ASI said, adding that now, their police remand would be sought from court so that the role of the trio in past incidents could be verified and more members of the gang be arrested.

A case was registered against the suspects on Saturday.
