The Delhi Police Crime Branch on Tuesday caught five members of a gang who allegedly stole cash and jewelry worth crores from houses in Delhi-NCR. The arrested women allegedly operated in areas including Hauz Khas, New Friends Colony and Greater Kailash. Police said they gained entry into the houses by posing as house helps and then carried out the theft with the help of an accomplice.
Thefts were allegedly carried out in pairs where one woman was the help and the other posed as her relative. The ‘relative’ used a range of gimmicks from tips on meditation to using magic or prayers to solve common problems to distract the members of the employer’s family while the help broke open the locks and stole valuables, the police said. Police also added that the some gang members had earlier sold valuables and used the money to build houses in Bihar. The gang even bought a car to ferry the maids.
