2 held from UP for trespassing at contractor’s house

Cracking the case of trespassing at a contractor's residence on December 31, the UT police arrested two more persons in addition to the one arrested on January 3. The two were nabbed from Uttar Pradesh.

Preliminary investigations have revealed that the three had come into the house with the intention of stealing the cash as they knew that the contractor used to keep some cash with him. But they were not able to open the lock of the room they were in. The three used to work for the contractor YP Saggi and knew that there were CCTV cameras installed in the house.

"They tried to open the lock of the CCTV equipment to steal the hard disc but since they were not able to open it, they stole the entire equipment," said DSP East, Vijay Kumar.

The three have also denied carrying a gun. "They said that they just warned the servant Hari that they had a gun but did not actually have one. But since the servant had said that he had seen the gun, we have to verify the same from him," he added.

Azim Ali aka Lambu main accused was arrested by the Police on January 3 and Raju aka Nanhe along with another were arrested from UP. The three will be produced in the court today. Azim Ali's Police remand also expires today.

The incident took place on December 31 when YP Saggi and his wife had gone to his son's place in the same row as their residence in Sector 7 to celebrate New Year's Eve. His servant Hari was alone at the house when three men allegedly came with a gun, knife and a cane.

As the three persons came into the house, they asked for Saggi and since they could not find him, they fled. They locked Hari in a room and escaped with the CCTV equipment and two mobile phones. Hari claims that he did not recognize the three and will be able to recognize two of them if he sees them.
