A man was today arrested for allegedly breaking into Saurabh Bharadwaj's office and decamping with electronic items in southeast Delhi's Kalkaji area, police said.

Vishal alias Lahiri, over 18 years of age, was arrested from the area, they said.


The burglary was discovered today when Bharadwaj reached his office, located inside a community centre, and found the door open, the police said.

The accused fled with an LCD TV, a computer and a video recorder (DVR) of the CCTV cameras installed in the office premises, they said.

The police did not have clues about the identity of the accused since they had taken the video recorder of the CCTV cameras.

A team of Kalkaji police station focused on the active criminals in the area and arrested the accused after sustained interrogation, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) Romil Baaniya said.

The police have recovered a central processing unit (CPU), two computer monitors, one LCD and a loud hailer from the accused.
