Six men, who planned a theft at the house of Indian cricketer Deepak Chahar in Agra, were arrested by the Shahganj police. They sketched the burglary when Deepak Chahar’s mother was alone in her home at Mansarovar Colony. However, some great sense of alertness shown by her ended putting the defaulters behind the bars.

These men were wanted by the local police in several burglary and theft cases. The accused, who were arrested, were identified as Rupkishore, Rajkumar, Vijay Kushwaha, Dasrath, Deendayal and Rakesh. They were all charged IPC section 412 (Dishonestly receiving property stolen in the commission of a dacoity) and 25 arms act.


Great alertness from Chahar’s mother

The burglars first cut the CCTV wires of the house. The gang conducted a proper recce before going for a theft at Chahar’s house. It was so well-planned that Deepak Chahar’s mother was all alone in the house at that point in time.

But sensing something fishy after the CCTV’s went off, the cricketer’s mother raised an alarm which forced the gang to flee from the place. The same gang was earlier involved in nine break-in and theft cases in Jagdispura police jurisdiction.

“The gang had conducted a recce prior to executing the burglary attempt. The gang was actively involved in at least nine break-in and theft cases reported in Jagdispura police jurisdiction,” Shahganj SHO Prem Niwas Sharma told the Times of India.

Even though Chahar’s family didn’t raise a formal complaint, a team of cops was formed to catch hold of the convicted men. Two pistols, an autorickshaw, and five monitors were among the items recovered from the thieves.

Chahar recently made his ODI debut for India in the Asia Cup. However, he failed to make it to the final cut for the upcoming series against the Windies.
