The Chandigarh Police on Sunday claimed to have solved two cases of robbery with the arrest of three persons. The three ó Ram Bahadur, a resident of Nepal, Chander Shekhar, a resident of Uttar Pradesh, and Vicky, a resident of Maloya ó are rickshaw pullers.
A team from Sector 34 Police Station, under the supervision of SHO Kirpal Singh, arrested the robbers. Two cases of robbery had been registered against the trio at this police station. While one case was filed on August 1, the other was registered on July 20.
Police claim that during the interrogation, it was established that the three of them used to pick passengers from ISBT-17 and 43. While Ram Bahadur used to pick the passengers and take them to isolated places, the other two would follow him. The three then would rob the passengers.
In one of the cases, one Harish Chander boarded a rickshaw from Sector 43 bus stand to Sector 33. On the slip road in Sector 44, he was beaten up by the three accused and his suitcase containing around Rs 20,000 and his mobile phone were taken away. In another incident, a resident of Hisar boarded a rickshaw to go to Sector 17 bus stand. Instead, he was taken to an abandoned area in Sector 34 where his gold chain, mobile phone and wallet were snatched.
Inspector Kirpal Singh said, "The three were caught based on the description given by the victims. The items that were robbed by them have been recovered. They were remanded in judicial custody today. Further interrogation could lead to more recoveries."
