Man held for thefts at airport

The Delhi Airport Police have arrested a man who allegedly stole cash, credit cards and costly articles from foreign nationals at the airport.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Airport) Sanjay Bhatia said on Wednesday that 35-year-old Rajesh Kapoor has been arrested several times earlier for similar offences.

He was arrested in January while stealing perfume bottles worth $2,016 at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport here.
He was arrested in Mumbai on September 30 for allegedly stealing $1,400 from the handbag of Chinese national Chen Yang at IGI Airport. Mr. Bhatia said CCTV footage helped nail the accused.

“The incident took place on September 30. Mr. Chen was travelling from Delhi to Mumbai by Jet Airways flight 9W-302 at 9.45 a.m. He put his handbag for x-ray screening. However, the zip was open when he got it back. Alarmed, he checked the bag and found $1,400 missing,” said Mr. Bhatia.

Mr. Chen reported the matter at the IGI Airport police station, following which a case was registered.
