Patna: Police in Patna on Monday nabbed seven criminals who had been running a loot and robbery ring targeting unsuspecting victims and stealing their motorcycles and other personal belongings.
Acting on a tip-off, a police team raided a house in Shastri Nagar and arrested Amar Kumar, the kingpin, and six of his associates. Police also recovered two pistols, four live bullets, two stolen motorcycles, several cell phones, and itching powder to render their victims helpless before stealing their valuables.
Patna Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) said the gang was active in Danapur, Shastri Nagar, and Kotwali area where they would spray itching powder on their intended victims and then rob them of their belongings including their vehicles.
The gang would then take out the license tag from the motorcycles and replace them with fake ones, the SSP said adding the vehicles were then sold in Hajipur, Muzaffarpur, and other towns.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
