NEW DELHI: Three young men have been arrested by the North-East Delhi police in connection with a month-old robbery-cum-murder case.

According to the police, some unidentified men stabbed one Paras Nath and drove away his mini-truck filled with copper scrap in early September. Paras later died in Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital.

During investigation, the police came across clues hinting at involvement of the Vipin Mavi gang. A gang member, Amit, was then arrested at Loni in Ghaziabad on October 3, the police said. Later Bhura and Raj Kumar, who allegedly bought the stolen copper scrap, were also arrested.
