The Ghaziabad Police on Wednesday detained two persons, both minors, on the charge of robbing a resident of Ghaziabad after they pulled him into an auto on January 23.
The body of one of their accomplices, Hariom, was fished out of the Hindon canal on January 29. Kanhaiiya, another of the gang who jumped into canal, is still missing.
Police said the two men had jumped into the canal after the man they robbed gave chase with the help of local residents. The two minors, one of whom is a Class XI student, had managed to escape.
Senior police officers said Dileep Rawat, a resident of Sahibabad, was pulled into an auto by the four accused near Noida Sector 62 on January 23. "One of the minors was driving the auto, while the other three relieved Rawat of his mobile phone, wallet and identity card. They then pushed him out of the auto near Indirapuram. However, Rawat took the help of local residents and gave chase in another vehicle. The four panicked and the driver of the auto raced off, while the other three got off the auto. Hariom and Kanhaiiya jumped into the canal while the third person, a minor, managed to escape," a police officer said.
The officer said the body of Hariom washed up on the banks of the canal on January 29. "The two minors have identified the body. But Kanhaiiya has not been located so far. He could have made his escape but there is also a possibility that he drowned. The two have confessed to the robbery and the items stolen have been discovered," he said.
