The accused was caught while trying to escape
The incident took place in a local train that left Virar for Churchgate around 4 am on September 11. Due to the Kovid guidelines, there was not much crowd in the train, yet the accused was trying to escape by snatching the mobile phone of a person and jumping off the train. Two wallets have also been recovered from the arrested youth. This purse is also believed to be stolen and the accused had blown it out of the pockets of two other passengers.
The accused wanted to carry out the robbery by taking advantage of sleep
Most of the people on the train were sleepy as it was night time. Taking advantage of this, the accused was trying to escape after committing the robbery. After arresting the accused, the accused was produced in a local court, from where he has been sent to three-day custody. The GRP suspects that some other people may also be involved in this incident along with the accused.
