Three youths, including the son of a police officer, have been arrested for burgling the homes of two policemen in Ashoka Police Line at Chanakyapuri. DCP (New Delhi district) B K Singh said the three accused broke into the homes of two officers when they were out of the city for a holiday, and stole gold jewellery, laptops and mobile phones.
“The theft was planned by Rahul Sharma, a 19-year-old DU student, who has been arrested along with his accomplices — Shravan Kumar Bharti, also a DU student, and Yogesh Verma, a driver,” he said.
A senior police officer said Sharma is the son of an officer who lives in the same locality where the burglaries took place. “He knew that the owners were away on a family trip, after which he made a plan with the other two accused to carry out the theft,” Singh said. Police said Sharma was put under surveillance following a tip-off and subsequently arrested.
