Four suspected members of the Mewat gang have been apprehended by the Rajasthan Police in connection with a recent milk powder theft case. The police have successfully recovered stolen milk powder valued at Rs 1 crore from the possession of the gang. Additionally, a total of 8 individuals, including the primary suspect, are currently evading law enforcement. The case was filed at the Mahua police station on January 10. It was revealed in a press conference that a truck transporting milk powder from a warehouse in the Mahua police station area to Haryana was hijacked by the suspects, along with the transporter and the truck driver. The milk powder failed to reach its intended destination, prompting the filing of a case at the Mahua police station. Subsequently, the police conducted extensive searches for trucks laden with milk powder in Rajasthan, Haryana, Delhi, Gujarat, and Uttar Pradesh.
Law enforcement authorities reviewed footage from approximately 900 CCTV cameras during their investigation. After persistent efforts, the police received information implicating the Mewat gang in the incident. To throw off the authorities, the suspects diverted the milk powder to Shekhawati in Rajasthan instead of transporting it to Mewat, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, or Delhi. When the police conducted a raid in Jhunjhunu district, they discovered 1153 trucks loaded with milk powder, along with seized firearms. The culprits had deceptively informed locals in Jhunjhunu that the goods in the boxes belonged to the Flipkart company and were housed in a warehouse.
The police have successfully recovered the Scorpio car and the truck used in the crime, along with seizing milk powder valued at approximately Rs 1 crore. The main suspect is facing a total of 21 registered cases in Rajasthan, Haryana, and other states.
