The suspects, who were reportedly armed with knives and using a Bajaj motorcycle (registration RE Red M1B014/A 3547) to facilitate their crimes, were apprehended in the act.

Following their capture, police displayed photographs of the arrested individuals alongside the weapons used and the motorcycle involved in the crimes. The suspects are currently under investigation and are expected to be prosecuted swiftly.
