Three men have robbed a jewellery shop in the Karawal Nagar area of North East Delhi, with the entire incident being captured on the store's CCTV camera. One of the robbers has been apprehended, and a pistol along with four live rounds was recovered from him by the police. The incident took place at Prem Vihar in Karawal Nagar, where the men looted the Jai Durga Jewellers showroom at gunpoint.
In a video footage shared by news agency ANI, the helmet-wearing robbers can be seen facing the shopkeepers and customers during the robbery. After emptying the store, two of the attackers allegedly snatched the motorcycle of a passerby before making their escape. The police have informed news agency PTI about the incident.
The arrested individual has been identified as Faizan, a 26-year-old resident of Nand Nagari in the capital city. Faizan already has a history of criminal activity and was recently released on bail. He is currently under interrogation, and law enforcement teams have been formed to apprehend his two accomplices.
This incident occurred less than a month following a gruesome incident in the same area, where three individuals were arrested for allegedly stabbing a 25-year-old man to death. The victim, identified as Deepak, was attacked near a Ramlila ground in the early hours of the morning. The accused individuals, Kishan, Deepanshu, and Deepak Kumar, residents of Karawal Nagar, stabbed the victim multiple times and crushed his head with a stone slab. Deepak was rushed to GTB Hospital but was declared dead upon arrival.
The authorities are working diligently to address the rise in criminal incidents in the region, and such acts of violence are a cause for concern. It is crucial for the police and local community members to collaborate in order to prevent and deter such criminal activities and ensure the safety and security of the residents.
