New Delhi: Seven members of a gang including three juveniles have been nabbed in connection with 16 cases of robberies and carjacking in south west Delhi, police said today.

Police had received complaints of two robberies including one in which a truck driver had escaped unhurt when fired at by the robbers in Jafarpur Kalan on the intervening night of August 8-9.

Working on the cases, police received a tip off and caught three persons including Ajay(18), Gajraj(23) and a juvenile, from Bakargarh More on August 21, said Mr Surender Kumar, DCP(south west).

The information revealed by the trio led to further arrest of two other accused Karambir (26) and Vinay Sharma(22) besides nabbing of two more juveniles near Mundhela Khurd drain, he said.

The gang members used to commit carjacking for thrill since none of them could drive vehicles which were later dumped by them, said the officer.

A total of 16 cases of robbery and carjacking have been worked out with busting of the gang. A country made pistol three live rounds, a stolen motorcycle, a gold chain and an identity card of one of their victims were recovered from them, he added.
