Three held for firing at police during chase

New Delhi, Feb 5, 2013, DHNS :

Three cattle thieves have been arrested for firing and pelting stones at policemen in a chase after a robbery in the Capital recently, police said on Tuesday.

Rizwan, 40 and Jaane Alam, 21, residents of Meerut in UP, and Mohammad Aaqil, 23, from Ghaziabad, were arrested in east Delhi’s Indraprastha Extension at a petrol pump where they stopped to refill a stolen car on Monday, said S B S Tyagi, deputy commissioner of police (crime).

“A country-made pistol and two live cartridges were recovered from Rizwan,” Tyagi said.
On January 15 night, the apprehended accused along with three others stole cattle from Rohini sector 27 in outer Delhi and were moving towards Bawana in a mini-truck when police chased them.

They tried to stop the robbers on main Bawana Road and Siraspur but instead, they opened fire on the policemen and pelted stones.

While escaping, they damaged two police control room vans, injuring two officials. They were at last forced to stop at a closed railway crossing being near Bhorgarh. By the time police reached there, Rizwan and his men fled leaving the stolen cattle in the mini-truck.

Police on Monday got a tip-off that Rizwan and two of his accomplices would come at a petrol pump in Indraprastha Extension in a stolen Santro Car for committing some crime and would be carrying illegal weapon. “We laid a trap and nabbed three accused,” said Tyagi.

Rizwan told police that they were involved in 10 cases of livestock thefts in Delhi. He used to add the stolen cattle to his dairy farm business.

“We are still probing into the case and looking for other gang members involved,” added Tyagi.
