The Free Press Journal - - MUMBAI - DI­WAKAR SHARMA/

The MIDC po­lice have ar­rested two men on Mon­day in con­nec­tion with house breakins in And­heri (west). An of­fi­cer said the duo – Ar­maan Khan (20) and Raes Khan (24) – are job­less and are ac­cused of com­mit­ting at least three house break-ins in two weeks.

“The duo browsed through the ‘YouTube’ to get easy tricks for house break-ins and used cheap tools like pipe, span­ner, pipe wrench and a screw driver to com­mit the crime,” said a se­nior of­fi­cer from MIDC po­lice sta­tion.

Both the Khans were ar­rested by night pa­trolling team of MIDC po­lice. “Our night pa­trolling team saw them in an au­torick­shaw in the wee hours. When they were ques­tioned, they could not give us sat­is­fac­tory re­sponse. They were also car­ry­ing a bag con­tain­ing plumb­ing tools. So they were brought to the po­lice sta­tion for fur­ther ques­tion­ing. They were wanted in break-in cases,” he said.

The investigators have learnt that the duo have seen over a dozen house break-in videos on YouTube be­fore com­mit­ting the crime.
