New Delhi: They should have spent their time revising for the CBSE examinations in February but two Class XII students in Delhi seemed to have other plans.

Dipankar Dass (21) and Kapil Chauhan (19), who are appearing for Board examinations, turned to snatching to fund their outings with girlfriends, police claimed today.

As the exam fever reached a high in the second fortnight of February, they allegedly committed four snatchings in the capital, police said.

Their victims include an MBBS student who lost her bag and mobile phone and a Spice Jet employee who was robbed of her laptop, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) H G S Dhaliwal.

Police claim these were not their first crimes and in the months of May and June last year, they targeted several women and snatched their cell phones, hand bags and gold chains in west Delhi's Janakpuri and Hari Nagar.

However, their luck ran out last Saturday when they went to PVR Priya complex in Vasant Vihar to dispose of a mobile phone and the laptop snatched from the airline employee. They were arrested from there on a tip-off, police said.

Chauhan is a student in a public school of Mahavir Enclave in Dwarka while Dass is appearing in the exams as a private candidate.

"Dass purchased a Karizma bike last year for committing snatching," Dhaliwal said.
