The team of cops tasted success on June 10, 2016 by nabbing the three key accused in the house-breaking cases. The three accused are Pawan Subhash Rehmatkar (21), resident of Narsala, Radharaman Colony (Mobile No. 9673985557), Ankush Vilasrao Mule (20), originally hailing from Chandurbazaar in Amravati District and presently staying in Narsala, Radharaman Colony, Nagpur and Swapnil Dattatray Aajne (20), resident of Shridhanu Complex, Ulhasnagar, Manewada Road.
