New Delhi: Four teenagers, allegedly involved in over 25 cases of crime, including the looting of an ATM and stealing the car of a brother of a Delhi High Court judge, were arrested from Gurgaon, police said on Thursday.

Two minors were among the arrested while the other two have been identified as Sanjeev (19) and Saleem (19), both residents of Najafgarh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) H G S Dhaliwal said.

The arrests were made yesterday from Sector 21 of Gurgaon following a chase after police received information about the presence of four persons involved in robbery cases in the locality.

"They told us that they were involved in 25 robberies. They had shot their victims without any provocation or resistance in many cases. In some incidents, they kept the victims hostage and looted them before leaving them in isolated areas," Dhaliwal said.

"All the four accused are school dropouts. After leaving school, Saleem became addicted to liquor and drugs and to earn quick money and live a lavish life, he formed a gang and started committing petty crimes," Dhaliwal said.

The gang was allegedly involved in stealing the car of 62-year-old brother of Delhi High Court judge Rekha Sharma after opening fire at him in Dwarka on February 27. They also allegedly robbed an ATM on the same day in Sector-4 of Gurgaon after locking the guard in an almirah.

Four vehicles, eight mobile phones, two country made pistols, six ATM cards and gold jewellery were recovered from them, police said.
