Thirty eight mobile phones, seven purses, one gold ring, eight ATM cards, five metro cards, five wrist watches, one passport, two knives, three cars and Rs 14,000 in cash were seized from them, Deputy Commissioner of Police Milind Dumbere said in a statement.
Acting on the complaints of some victims, a team from Vasant Kunj North police station was constituted and increased surveillance in the area, the statement said.
"They would give lift to the victim agreeing to drop him at his destination. They would make their victim sit between the two of the accused on the rear seat and after reaching near any dark patch they forcibly looted the victim by showing and injuring with knife. After looting the victim, they used to throw him at some dark stretches," the police officer said said.
