<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Police have arrested two persons, including a loader at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, for allegedly stealing 40 iPhones worth Rs 28 lakh. Police have recovered 28 stolen iPhone 7 worth Rs 19.5 lakh from the duo, said an official of the Delhi Police Crime Branch. The Apple phones scheduled for launch in India on April 14 arrived at the cargo complex of the IGI Airport on April 12. Later that day, they went missing, he said. On the basis of a tip-off, the two accused — Preetam Nishad and Anurag Singh — were arrested on May 13. Preetam used to work as a loader with Kishan Pal Transport Service at the IGI Airport cargo complex. He met Anurag Singh, who was also working there as a loader. A few months ago, Preetam lost his job but he kept his ID card with him. The duo hatched a plan to steal the items from the cargo complex. Since Anurag was still working as a loader at the complex, he identified the areas that were not covered by the CCTV cameras. He kept a close eye on the shipments arriving at the cargo complex, but he could not take the stolen articles out of the airport before finishing his shift, said the officer. On April 12, he saw a fresh shipment of iPhones and called Preetam to the cargo complex. Anurag stole four small packages containing 10 iPhones each, which Preetam took and left. Anurag joined him later after finishing his shift and they took 20 phones each. They sold the phones by telling buyers that they have been purchased from the auction of the customs department, he said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
