Thim­phu po­lice ar­rested five boys aged 13 to 18 years for their al­leged in­volve­ment in rob­bery on Septem­ber 21.

They have ex­torted and stole cell phones, car keys and cash from the Khasadrapchu area in Thim­phu.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened on the day when the com­plainant, a 42-year-old man was with a friend in a car at a place called Lang­tagsa, near Khasadrapchu in Thim­phu. One of the boys pelted stones and broke the car’s glass. The man man­aged to es­cape from the scene and in­form the po­lice. The sus­pects were ar­rested on the same night. Upon fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the po­lice found out the sus­pects were in­volved in three sim­i­lar cases ear­lier. They had robbed cell phones and about Nu 13,000 from the vic­tims.The first case was re­ported to the po­lice in May last year. How­ever, even af­ter sev­eral op­er­a­tions to trace out the cul­prits, they were not suc­cess­ful due to the area be­ing vast.
