Mumbai: A pickpocket with nearly two dozen cases on Mumbai`s congested suburban railway system behind him was finally nabbed after he dodged detection for a year, an official said here on Tuesday.
Ganesh Gangurade, a mall employee in Thane, complained that on the morning of September 16 his wallet containing Rs 10,000 in cash and some personal documents was picked from his backpack at the Ghatkopar Metro Station.
The Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL) security swung into action to help him lodge a complaint with Chirag Nagar police station and also pored over CCTV footage to track the pickpocket.
After a close scrutiny, the Metro security finally zeroed in on the suspect who was in the vicinity of the 25-year-old Gangurade at that time.
The suspect`s profile and a lookout notice was circulated among the Metro security and finally on Monday morning, the culprit was apprehended. More info
