He was under the close watch of the police. A police team led by an officer was on a check of the suspect’s house when the suspect was caught red handed while returning to his house from a fresh burglary committed in Kawajangsa.
Police also apprehended three other men linked to the suspect. RBP recovered handicraft items, clothes, power chain and other wooden items (Dapa), but they were unable to recover any cash from him.
