A 20-year-old woman has been apprehended by security agencies for allegedly stealing belongings of commuters travelling in the Delhi Metro. The incident occurred yesterday around 2:00 pm at the Chhatarpur station when a 30-year-old commuter complained to on-duty CISF personnel that her bag had gone missing from the X-ray baggage scanner.
Officials said the security personnel immediately scanned CCTV footage of the area and found a different woman picking up the bag from the scanner and boarding the next available train from the station. The said woman, a resident of Gurgaon, was apprehended by CISF personnel from the MG Road station and her interrogation led to the disclosure of her involvement in other thefts in the past in the rapid rail network operational in the national capital region.
She was handed over to Delhi police and is under arrest, they said.
