Woman pickpocket arrested

New Delhi, Jan 14 (PTI) A 40-year-old woman allegedly involved in pickpocketing in busy market areas in South Delhi has been arrested, police said today. Anita, a resident of village Ferozpur of Palwal in Haryana, was arrested yesterday when she pickpocketed a purse of Rakhi, a resident of Durga Vihar in Khanpur, at Sarojini Nagar Market while she was shopping with her friends, a senior police officer said. The complainant noticed the accused holding her purse in her hand. She was arrested with Rakhi's purse, which had Rs 1,000, and two more stolen purses were also recovered from her possession. During interrogation, she said that she was running a gang of pick pockets who operate in busy markets. "She had come to Sarojini Nagar market along with her two associates Reshma and Kavita, both resident of Faridabad. The gang used to operate in the busy markets such as Sarojini Nagar, Lajpat Nagar and Greater Kailash during weekends and used to steal purses and mobile phones," said Chhaya Sharma, DCP, South district. The other modus operandi they use was to involve minors who used to jostle around the victims to divert their attention and the kingpin and her associates used to steal by cutting their bags, the official said.
