Heera’s son Kailash Porwal on 2nd June had reported police that an accised had entered his house at 9.30 PM and snatched gold chain from the woman sleeping in the room. Before she could react, the accused had fled from the scene, said investigation officer Nathu Singh.

The drug addicts of the area were interrogated and through them, the boy’s identification was revealed from the footage.

When his parents were contacted, police learnt that he was receiving treatment at a Jaipur based addiction relief camp. Soon the team rushed Jaipur and nabbed the accused.

Chirag during the initial interrogation revealed that he had committed the crime along with one of his associate Anubhav Parashar who hails from Tonk road, Jaipur and was staying at Subhash Nagar. Anubhav was later arrested by the police on Monday on the information of Chirag, Nathu Singh said.

Police also found that Chirag was a graduate and Anubhav, a post graduate who were prone to drugs and consumed brown sugar since a very long time. When they stopped receiving money from family members, they planned to commit loot to purchase drugs. After the incidence of crime, the duo mortgaged the chain at Muthoot Finance for Rs. 52,000 cash, Singh informed.
