Delhi Police arrested three mobile snatchers involved in the murder of a passenger inside a bus outside the zoo on Sunday.
The incident took place around 6pm when deceased Amarjeet Singh, travelling with his wife in a cluster bus, was about to step down from the vehicle outside the zoo.
Three of the accused have been identified as Suraj, Sumit and Ajit and arrested. Their fourth accomplice is absconding.
“While Amarjeet was stepping down from the bus, he felt someone picking his pocket for his mobile. He raised alarm, but was caught by the snatcher and his accomplices attacked him,” said Madhur Verma, DCP, New Delhi.
As other passengers tried to overpower one snatcher, one of his accomplices pulled out a knife and stabbed Singh multiple times, leaving him critically injured. Singh was taken to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on Monday.
