The city police on Sunday arrested three persons on charges of theft.
The trio was apprehended by a Commissioner’s Task Force (West) team led by Inspector B. Gattu Mallu for snatching a bag containing Rs. 51,000 from an auto-rickshaw driver on Wednesday.
The accused were identified as Md. Abdul Salman, 24, Shaik Asif, 20, and Shaik Shakeel, 40, all residents of Tolichowki.
Mr. Mallu said the accused persons waylaid the auto driver and asked him to give change for Rs. 500 and noticed cash in the front dickey of the auto. They then hatched a plan to snatch the bag and followed him.
“All of a sudden, they boarded the auto, took away the bag and fled from the scene,” he said.
Acting on a tip off, the task force (west) team apprehended the accused at Hakeempet in Tolichowki and recovered Rs. 42,000 and a mobile phone from their possession.
