A gang by the name Dhol Baaz has been busted with the arrest one of its member. It is reported that these gang members, operating in railway stations of Delhi, used to lure passengers in one way or the other and thereafter escape with their belongings.
One such gang led by Pramod was also operating in Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station. And it was informed to police that the gang had duped a lady of jewellery articles worth Rs. 5 lakh and cash.
The modus operandi of the gang was that Devender while driving the auto rickshaw with Mashkoor and Vicky Choudhary as passengers approached the lady, who was looking for an auto. They told her that as they were also going to the same destination, they would charge only one third of the total fare. As soon as she sat in the auto, another member of the gang stopped the auto by waving his hand, entered the auto as a passenger and sat in such a manner which disrupted the complete view of the lady, said officials, adding that the people sitting with the lady then opened her bag with their instruments and escaped with all her jewellery and cash.
By the time the lady realised that something went wrong with her and shouted for help, the auto driver had made their way.
But, their luck ran recently when three people sitting in the auto were apprehended and the gang leader Parmod and other associate Rajan were also arrested. On sustained interrogation, Pramod told police that he used to sell jewellery articles.
