Selfie metro helps crack theft case, bust woman gang of thieves

A selfie taken by an US-based NRI woman helped CISF recover her stolen gold jewellery worth Rs 22 lakh and bust a gang of women pickpockets from a Metro station in Delhi. The CISF Tuesday said they nabbed six alleged women pickpockets at a station here who used to operate in crowded areas and target the metro travellers.

Nilam Kumari, the California-primarily based NRI device engineer, had on December 9 filed a grievance that her jewelry bag was once stolen close to critical Secretariat station when she used to be visiting together with her husband, CISF officers mentioned. “The couple had valued the stolen jewellery at Rs 22 lakh of their FIR,” they stated. They said they cracked the case with the help of a ‘selfie’ Nilam had clicked on-metro and submitted it to the police. The ‘selfie’ had probably the most accused pickpocket girl in the historical past.

Appreciating the investigative skills of the three Central Industrial Security Force personnel, the force's chief O P Singh announced a prize of Rs 20,000 cash for Sub-Inspector Monika and Constables Noorjahan and Nasrin Khatun.
