New Delhi: The Delhi Police busted a Madhya Pradesh-based gate crashers’ gang. They train children how to steal during weddings. Police have nabbed three members of the gang and solved several cases of theft. They stole a large amount while attending several marriages in different cities, such as Delhi, Faridabad, and Ghaziabad. The police have so far recovered Rs 63,500 in cash, a gold chain, a bag, and a car from them.
The police claimed to have identified three suspects, including a minor, after reviewing all video footage of the wedding ceremonies and placing informants at a number of prestigious banquet venues and farmhouses. On the basis of a tip, they later detained the suspects.
The suspects admitted to the police during interrogation that they were from a little village of Gulkheri in the Rajgarh district of Madhya Pradesh.
They claimed to have travelled to Delhi, the NCR, and other major cities during the wedding season to commit thefts at wedding venues. The gang’s leader also admitted that they used to attract parents of children between the ages of 9 and 15 by giving some amount to them every year.
According to the police, the children must go through a month of training to learn how to steal at weddings and how to mingle with the guests.
There are several members of all ages in the group, such as adult men, kids, and women who live in rented houses and ask the children to attend functions and marriages, and who sometimes wait outside on three-wheelers and motorcycles. The women treat the children like their own and inform parents of their well-being.
