Firozabad (UP), Oct 19 (TIWN) Four policemen have been suspended and sent to jail for allegedly snatching Rs 96,000 from two thieves who had stolen Rs 1 lakh.

SSP Firozabad Ashok Kumar ordered the arrest of the guilty policemen immediately after they were identified.  Following court orders on Monday, the two thieves, along with the four policemen, were sent to jail.  According to reports, on October 15, grocery dealer Gaurav Kumar had filed a complaint at the Rasulpura police station alleging theft of Rs 1 lakh by unknown persons from his auto-rickshaw. 

Soon after the theft was reported, the Firozabad SSP ordered that all vehicles on the road in the district be checked so that the culprits do not escape to neighbouring districts. 

While scanning footage from CCTV cameras installed in the area, police saw the two thieves stealing money stored under the seat of the delivery vehicle.  The police, on Sunday, arrested the two thieves, identified as Priyanshu and Om Singh, from their residences in Mainpuri district.  During interrogation, the two revealed that on October 15 they were stopped by four policemen posted in Sirsaganj police station while they were on their way home to Mainpuri after committing the theft, and the police kept Rs 96,000 and then escorted them to the district border safely.
