Seven stolen mobile phones, four gold chains and house breaking equipment were recovered from their possession. The scooter, they were riding was also found stolen, the officer said.

Later, on their instance, four gold rings, two pair of ear tops, one silver glass, one silver plate, one silver bowl and one silver spoon were also recovered, the officer added.

Babu Lal along with his associates Pappu and Radhey Shyam used to do a reece on scooter or a bike in the areas of Delhi during day time. After spotting soft targets, they commit the offence and leave the area. One of the accused used to mislead target and the other two accused commit the crime, the police said.
