Minor Held for Burgling PM's Media Adviser
The car of Prime Minister's Media Adviser Harish Khare, which was stolen, was today found abandoned in north Delhi by police which detained a minor boy in this connection.

The car was found abandoned in Nehru Vihar and a minor boy was detained in this connection.

Unidentified burglars had yesterday broken into Khare's residence in Civil Lines and decamped with his laptop and mobile, besides driving away his car.

Khare and his family were sleeping when the incident took place.

The incident came to light when Khare's wife reported to police yesterday that when they woke up, they found that door of the balcony open and one laptop, one BlackBerry mobile phone and the car were missing from the house.

"During investigations, footage of a CCTV camera installed outside the ATM Booth of Dena Bank, situated in the same premises were examined. The footage revealed the movement of two persons inside the compound during late night. One of the persons was captured in the footage carrying a laptop. Hence, the team started verification of the suspected persons.

Photographs, prepared on the basis of the said footage were shown to the residents of the nearby areas. Human intelligence was also developed. During this course, specific information was received that one juvenile has committed this crime with the help of his two associates," I B Rani, Deputy Commissioner of Police (North), said.

Informers were deployed and teams were sent to trace out the car as it was felt that the culprits would try to hide it for some time before taking it away.

"The minor involved in the crime was found inside the car. Police officials asked him to come out of the car but he was not willing to comply. Despite repeated directions, he remained reluctant.

"Suspecting that he might flee with the car and to avoid any untoward incident, police team broke the glass of the car and apprehended the said juvenile," Rani said.

During his examination it was revealed that the said crime was committed with the help of another juvenile and one Rohit. Khare's laptop and mobile phone are said to be in their possession.

However, on the formal search of apprehended juvenile, two mobile phones and Rs 4,500 have been recovered from his possession. Efforts are on to locate the owner of the recovered mobile phones and apprehending the remaining accused persons.

He has disclosed that he and his friend who is also a juvenile is being used for committing thefts and burglaries by their co-accused Rohit, who is middle aged, as it is easy for them to gain entry into premises.

The car was kept in a residential colony and the main accused Rohit had gone in search of a suitable buyer and had promised to return in the early morning to take away the car. He had been running an organised racket using juveniles in committing crimes.
