Ring road robber arrested

New Delhi, Nov 2 (IANS) A key member of a gang that targets commuters at bus stops on the Ring Road was arrested for robberies committed at knife-point after giving lifts to passengers, police said Saturday.

Vipin Kumar was arrested near a bus stop in south Delhi's Sunlight Colony Friday when he along with his associates was on the lookout for gullible commuters.

"One of the luxury cars being used by the accused was also seized," said a police officer.

Kumar revealed he and his gang members used to park their car near bus stops and taking advantage of the duration between arrival and departure of buses, offer lifts to commuters at a low fare.

"Once a passenger was seated, the gang used to take the vehicle to an isolated place and rob him at knife point before escaping from the spot," said the officer.

Efforts were being made to arrest other accused, the officer added.
