Three suspected members of the Neeraj Bawania gang were arrested for allegedly impersonating CBI officials and stealing valuables from a jeweller’s house in Karol Bagh on July 26. Police said the accused came up with the idea to impersonate a CBI official after watching the Bollywood movie,
Special 26, several times.
According to police, seven members of the gang went to the jeweller’s house. One of them, wearing a khaki uniform, entered the house. The men then overpowered the family and held them at gunpoint. However, a woman staying on the top floor raised an alarm and the accused fled, taking some jewellery and electronic items. Following a tip-off on August 6, three of the accused — Narender Vesnav alias Sunny (30), Madan (28) and Neeraj (38) — were nabbed from Shahbad Dairy, police said.
