■ PANCHKULA: The po­lice caught two mis­cre­ants red-handed while they while com­mit­ting a theft at a house in Sec­tor 6 here on Mon­day night.

The in­ci­dent took place when the owner of the house had gone for some work in Chandi­garh with his fam­ily.

The mis­cre­ants, Amit and Parveen, both res­i­dents of Man­i­ma­jra, en­tered the house at around 10.30pm. One of the neigh­bours, who was aware that the fam­ily was not home, af­ter hear­ing some noises called up the owner to as­cer­tain whether he was in­side the house.

On get­ting the in­for­ma­tion, the owner reached the house and called the po­lice. A PCR and a team from the Sec­tor-6 po­lice post reached there. They en­tered the house and ar­rested the thieves red-handed.

“We re­cov­ered a sta­biliser and a stereo from their pos­ses­sion. A case un­der Sec­tions 454 (tres­pass) and 380 (theft) has been reg­is­tered against the ac­cused. Both were pro­duced in the court on Tues­day, which sent them to ju­di­cial cus­tody,” said ASI Bal­want Singh, in­charge of the Sec­tor-6 po­lice post.
