Four pose as anti-corruption sleuths, ‘raid’ Shahdara house | Delhi News


New Delhi: Four people, including a woman, have been arrested for allegedly barging into a house in Shahdara posing as officials of anti-corruption department and snatching valuables of the family members. At least three of the arrested people have past criminal records, senior police officers said.
The arrested people have been identified as Gurjant Singh and Satpal from Fatehgarh in Punjab, their associate Navjot Singh from Chandigarh and Gurpreet from Ludhiana in Punjab. The incident occurred close to the Shahdara police station on Sunday evening.
“The complainant alleged that her husband works at a currency exchange centre in Chandni Chowk. She said, around 6 pm, about 15 people, including men and women, entered their house forcibly. They introduced themselves as officials of the anti-corruption department who had come for a house raid. When the complainant asked them to show a search warrant, they told her that they have arms and threatened not to resist,” said deputy commissioner of police (Shahdara) R Sathiyasundaram.
The woman further alleged that the accused started opening almirah, beds, etc, on the ground and first floors. “Some of them also molested the complainant, she alleged. The men snatched mobile phones of family members and took away hand bags containing gold ornaments and Rs 15,000 cash,” the officer added.
When the suspects were leaving, the complainant raised an alarm and called neighbours for help who nabbed four people and later informed the police.
“Fake ID cards of Anti-Corruption Foundation of India, along with a Bolero car used in the crime, were recovered from their possession. An FIR with sections of dacoity, molestation, criminal conspiracy and others was registered and all the four suspects were arrested. Their interrogation revealed that while Gurjant Singh was previously involved in three cases of narcotics, Navjot had a cheating case registered against him. Satpal was found involved in two cases of narcotics,” the officer said.
