New Delhi: Two snatchers, who used to target high-end mobiles to raise funds for living a good life, landed in police custody. The duo was arrested from Outer Delhi’s Mangolpuri area.

The police said that one of the accused, Amir Siddique, told the police that they intensified their criminal activities because he was in dire need of money to arrange finance for the marriage of his sister. With their arrest, over a dozen cases of snatching were resolved.

The duo ran out of luck on December 15 when the police received a tip-off that one of them would come along with his friend Sagar Singh at B-Block in Mangolpuri to sell the stolen mobile phones. A trap was laid and the duo was nabbed by the team.

During questioning, accused Sagar stated that he and Amir had stolen the two-wheeler, from Rohini area, that they were riding. The facts of the stolen two-wheeler were later verified.

Further questioning revealed that they indulged in snatching to maintain a lavish and materialistic life to influence the people around them.

However, accused Aamir also added that he was in dire need of money as he needed to arrange finance for the marriage of his sister.
