New Delhi: A 26-year-old man along with his girlfriend was arrested for their alleged involvement in snatching cases in west Delhi, the police said on Tuesday.
Four mobile phones were recovered from them. The police team of West District arrested Raju (26), a resident of Palam Colony, Delhi, and his 22-year-old girlfriend Anjali, a resident of Sagarpur, Delhi.

“On Monday following a tip-off, both the accused were nabbed while they were roaming on a motorcycle in Mayapuri area,” said Bhardwaj.

During interrogation, Raju said he took to drugs with his girlfriend Anjali.
The police said Anjali was able to evade arrest which raised her confidence to commit more crime.
“Anjali liked to dress up as boys, which hid her identify,” said Bhardwaj.
