Chandigarh boys held for theft

Solan, October 29
The police claims to have solved several cases of burglary and theft which had taken place in the town recently with the arrest of two youths from Burail in Chandigarh.

Solan SP Hardesh Bisht told mediapersons here today that they had arrested Pawan and Naresh from their house at Burail in Chandigarh after Sunil, who was arrested earlier, had revealed that they had carried out various robberies and burglaries in the town.

The police recovered a 9mm pistol, another .32 bore pistol, which was stolen from BD Pathak, a local resident here, from them. Two cartridges, jewellery worth Rs 1.30 lakh, silver ornaments, four laptops, digital cameras, a Tata Safari and a motorcycle were also recovered from the Chandigarh youths.

Pathak’s house had been burgled and valuables, including this pistol, had been stolen from his house.

The SP said their preliminary investigation had revealed their involvement in cases of burglary and robbery in the town and more details would emerge after detailed investigations.

A case under the Arms Act and various Sections of robbery and burglary has been registered against them.

The SP said it was the interception of Sunil Kumar during a routine checking that led to the arrest of the two youths from Burail. Sunil, who hails from Hamirpur, was part of the gang who had been active in the town for the past several months.

He was earlier arrested on suspicion when two numberplates that were displayed at the front and rear of a Maruti 800, which he was driving, displayed different numbers.

A subsequent search led to the recovery of a sword, house-breaking equipments and some numberplates, which led to his arrest. Sunil was also involved in another burglary at the Chakker area of Shimla, where a woman was looted by masked sword-wielding youths in the recently.
