The Delhi Police probing the cash can heist case held the custodian of the cash for stealing cash worth Rs 10 lakh from the van.
The police stated that the heist took place on October 19 and the matter was reported to police by the assistant branch manager of CMS Infosystem, situated at Jhandewalan in Delhi.
The police investigation found out that Dharamraj Meena, deputed as a custodian of one of their cash vans, was going to an ATM along with armed guards and the driver of the vehicle.
Around 5.40 pm, when the staff reached Kashmere Gate, Meena allegedly went inside the cash van vehicle vault, remained there for around 15 minutes, removed cash worth Rs 10 lakh from filled and sealed cassettes and kept it in his bag. The entire act was recorded in the CCTV cameras in the van, officials added.
The police teams were hunting for Meena who was absconding after the heist. The police raided Meena’s native village in Rajasthan but failed to locate him. Subsequently, on analysing his call detail record, the police traced his location to Dwarka from where he was arrested.
The accused has been booked for robbery along others charges under the IPC.
