By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, MARCH 3. A gang of alleged Bangladeshi migrants, said to be involved in recent incidents of robbery reported from DLF Gurgaon and North-West Delhi, has been busted in a joint operation of the South Delhi, South-West Delhi and Gurgaon police. Six persons, including a woman, have been arrested in this connection and a huge amount of cash, jewellery, other robbed items and weapons -- including a hand grenade -- have been recovered from them.

During the last week of February, a spate of robberies had shocked the residents of DLF Gurgaon and also North-West Delhi. The Special Staff of the South Delhi police, led by Inspector Rajender Singh, the South-West Delhi police team, comprising sub-inspectors Rajkumar and Ravinder Tyagi, and the Gurgaon police, led by Inspector Hari Kishan, coordinated their efforts to identify and arrest the culprits.

The first two arrests in this connection were made by the South Delhi police. Abdul Rahim (27) and Nijam (35) were arrested and robbed jewellery worth over Rs. 2 lakhs were received.

Three more, Sagir alias Sagar, Javed and Imran, were arrested by the South-West Delhi police following a brief exchange of fire this morning. The police have recovered a hand grenade, a Chinese pistol, two country-made revolvers and live cartridges from them.

At their instance, the police arrested Noor Jehan alias Reena from her hideout at Kishangarh in South-West Delhi. The police recovered Rs. 1.6 lakhs in cash, diamond and gold jewellery worth several lakhs, 10 imported gold watches, digital cameras and four mobile phones from her.

During interrogation, the accused allegedly confessed to having been involved in the robberies which took place in Gurgaon and also the one in Shalimar Bagh, North-West Delhi, on February 28. The robbers had escaped with cash and jewellery worth Rs. 7 lakhs after injuring the only woman present in the house in the incident.
