Nagpur: Nandanvan police have arrested a notorious robber involved in many cases and seized three stolen motorcycles from his possession.The cops were investigating a case in which a 50-year old woman Laxmi Anilprakash Arya (50), resident of Flat No. 106, Sukhsagar Building, East Wardhaman Nagar, was relieved of her handbag by a bike-borne goon around 5 pm on June 1, 2018. During the probe, cops received secret inputs on June 9 that a suspicious youth was trying to sell a stolen Vivo company’s mobile phone at Kumbhartoli Square.

However, when subjected to intense questioning, Rohan confessed stealing a handbag of a woman in Deshpande Layout 8-10 days ago and the mobile phone was in the bag. Cops placed him under arrest and seized the mobile phone.

The arrested accused was produced in a court and two-day police custody was procured. During custodial interrogation, the accused Rohan Rangari confessed his role in many robbing cases.
