The burglaries were reported from four showrooms selling branded wares in the inner circle between May 4 and 14.

The accused were earlier arrested for burglary in Rohini in Delhi in 2017. After their release from jail in 2018, they resumed the burglaries though in other areas.
Stolen branded clothes, Nikon camera, two aluminum trays and a Tata Indica used in the crime have been recovered from their possession.
