Less than 24 hours after they forcefully snatched the gold chain of a senior citizen by picking up a quarrel with him on a petty issue, the trio were arrested by the crime detection unit of the Virar police from Bhiwandi on Saturday.

The unit started investigations and collected information of criminals who used a similar modus operandi to commit such crimes. After getting clues about the identity of the suspects, the team laid a trap at a well-known dhaba located on the Wada-Bhiwandi Road and apprehended the trio.

The accused include the kingpin of the gang Ajgar Khan alias Ajju, 43 who has multiple cases registered against him at police stations, including Bhiwandi, Valiv and Virar. His accomplices have been identified as Miraj Ahmed Ansari, 33, and Jamaal Ansari, 38 – all residents of Bhiwandi.

The police also recovered a gold chain worth Rs1.10 lakh from the possession of the accused who have been booked for voluntarily causing hurt in committing or attempting to commit robbery. The trio were remanded to custody after they were produced before the court.
