One more held for Delhi heist

New Delhi, Feb 3: The Delhi Police have made one more arrest in the sensational Rs.7.69-crore heist here, a police officer said Monday.

“Ajay, in his early 20s, was arrested from south Delhi area early this (Monday) morning,” the officer told IANS.

Four arrests have so far been made. A juvenile suspected to be the mastermind of the heist, has also been apprehended.

A group of people robbed Rs.7.69 crore cash from businessman Rajesh Kalra near Lajpat Nagar in south Delhi and hijacked the car in which he was going with four other employees Jan 28.
