Two persons have been arrested by the Outer Delhi Police for alleged involvement in several cases of auto-theft.

Acting on a tip-off, the police laid a trap in Block ‘Y’ Mangolpuri over the weekend and arrested Raj Kumar (23) and Bunty (21). Five stolen motorcycles were allegedly seized at their instance. During interrogation, the accused purportedly told the police that they would open locks of motorcycles using steel wires.

Raj Kumar was arrested in 2008 in connection with auto-theft cases. Bunty is a school drop-out.
