The UT Police on Thursday nabbed four people for allegedly trespassing into the residence of a contractor in Sector 7 on December 31. The four have been rounded up from Uttar Pradesh (UP) and are being brought to Chandigarh.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (East) Vijay Kumar said: "We have cracked the case and we have identified the persons who had barged into the residence of the contractor with weapons."
The UT Police had earlier arrested one of the accused Azim Ali aka Lambu, who has been sent to two-day police remand by a local court.
Y P Saggi, the contractor whose house was trespassed, confirmed that Azim Ali worked as a labourer with him, whom he had scolded a few days ago. The incident took place on December 31, when Saggi and his wife had gone to their 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 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 CCTV equipment and two mobile phones. Hari claims that he did not recognise the three and will be able to recognise two of them if he sees them.
DSP Vijay Kumar said that Lambu was involved in the crime but had not visited the house on December 31. Since police suspected that the three intruders had an intention to attack Saggi, the family has been living somewhere else instead of their house.
