The city police have arrested a gang of three thieves, including a woman, for committing jewelery theft worth Rs 1,47,150 from a jewelery shop in Vadaj. The police have scanned about forty camera images to identify the thieves.

According to police, on April 30, three persons, including a woman, had reached Abhushan Jewelers as customers. When the jewelry was shown to them, one of the three individuals siphoned the jewelry and escaped from the store.

“Among those arrested are Praveen Dantani, Karan Dantani and Bharti Dantani. The accused Praveen was also involved in a similar theft incident in Kadi earlier,” the police official said.
