The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) Saturday claimed to have busted a gang of dacoits involved in several highway robberies. They have arrested a total of nine people from Greater Noida. The gang used to target trucks carrying goods on highways in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi, and Rajasthan, the Noida unit of the STF said in a statement.
"The nine gang members, including the kingpin, were arrested from Eco-Tech 1 area of Greater Noida, and a huge quantity of robbed items, including mobile phones, computer monitors, and footwear, were seized," STF's statement said. "The gang targeted trucks carrying goods of e-commerce giant Amazon the most," the agency said. The STF seized 388 mobile phones and Rs. 70,000 cash from their possession.
The kingpin of the gang, Vineet, a resident of Haryana, had also designed three sensational dacoities in the state earlier this year, and was wanted in those cases as well, the STF said.
