Modern-day Robin Hood with lavish tastes nabbed
Delhi Police has arrested a 27-year-old suspected burglar, who used to use a part of what he stole and organise health camps in his native village in Bihar. The accused used to do this with an accomplice and led a lavish lifestyle, police said.
Deputy Commissioner of Police, south-east district, Romil Baaniya said the accused has been identified as Irfan, who was arrested on July 6 from his native village in Sitamarhi district of Bihar.
On May 24, a man named Rajeev Khanna filed a police complaint alleging that gold and diamond jewellery had been stolen from his home in southeast Delhi's New Friends Colony, the police official said.
The police scanned CCTV footages from burglary prone areas of New Friends Colony to identify the accused. Subsequently, it was found that a man from Sitamarhi, Bihar is committing burglaries in these areas. Police also arrested Dharmender who used to buy the booty from Irfan. Stolen jewellery weighing 320 gram has been recovered from them.
During night hours, Irfan used to roam in posh colonies of the NCR. On finding locked premises, he would break open the doors or window and decamp with valuables, said the police official.
He always remained bare foot while committing theft in houses and would generally commit burglaries alone, he added. He was used to spending money in bars and clubs in Mumbai and Delhi.
In one of the bars in Delhi, he offered to give Rs 10,000 to hear a song of his choice, the DCP said.
He was living a luxurious life with access to latest cars and fashionable clothes and he was quite active on social media. He would also spend money to impress his girlfriends.
"He maintained a larger-than-life image in his native area. He would often fund health camps for people in his village," said Baaniya.
Irfan claims to have committed burglaries in UP and Punjab as well, the DCP added.
