Police have also recovered one country-made pistol with one cartridge, two high-end mobile phones and a stolen bike from the possession of the accused.

The accused has been identified as Suraj alias ‘Fighter’, a resident of Uttam Nagar area.

According to Monika Bhardwaj, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), West district, on August 5, a complaint was received in which a woman reported that while she was talking on her mobile phone near Sanatan Dharam Mandir, Vikas Puri, two persons on a bike snatched away her phone.

During investigation, the police team checked all CCTV footage near the place of the incident. The photographs and CCTV footage led to the arrest of one of the suspects named Rahul.
