Youth held for committing theft to ‘marry his girlfriend on V-Day’

New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Thursday  January 20 arrested a 20-year-old man who allegedly committed theft at the house of his neighbour in order to marry his girlfriend on Valentines Day.

A senior police officer said that the accused has been identified as Mohammad Jaid.

As per the police, a person named Mohammed Fahimudeen had lodged a complaint of theft with them, stating that on January 18, his wife, who was alone at home, had stepped out for some work. When she returned, she found that Rs 3 lakh in cash, which was kept at the house, was missing.

The police lodged an FIR and started investigation. After scanning a number of CCTV footages, the police identified the accused who was soon apprehended.

During interrogation, the accused told the police that he was in dire need of money in order to marry his girlfriend and that is why he committed the theft.

He used to watch crime serials and got the idea of committing the theft from one of them,” the officer said, adding that the stoen money has been recovered from his possession.
