3 arrested with 16 mobile phones, 2 wrist watches

The Machhiwara police claimed to have cracked a gang of miscreants with the arrest of three of its members, including a 17-year-old minor who is the kingpin of the gang.

The police recovered 16 mobile phones and two wrist watches from their possession.

As the kingpin of the gang is a minor, the police concealed his identity. The others have been identified as Laddi Singh of Samrala and Dukhna of Machhiwara.

Machhiwara SHO Harjinder Singh Benipal said the police arrested the accused on Tuesday following a tip-off and recovered mobile phones and wrist watches that they had stolen from a shop near Durga Shakti Mandir on the night of March 17.
