MUMBAI: A 19-year-old collegian from Nalasopara was arrested recently for her 15th case of theft on local trains. Afreen Ansari was booked by Mumbai Central GRP for stealing cash and identity cards from a woman commuter’s handbag at Dadar (Western Railway) station.
Police said they identified her on the basis of footage from CCTVs at the station. She is a second year B Com student.
“Ansari has had a criminal record since she was a minor. Twelve of the 15 cases against her were recorded when she was underage,” said Mehboob Inamdar, senior inspector, Mumbai Central GRP.
“We have tried counselling her before when she was caught at Kurla,” said Inamdar. “We told her that she could complete her graduation and start a job to support her family… But she has continued to get involved in crimes.”
On September 14, a commuter was getting into a Borivli local from Dadar (WR) station around 4.20 pm when a pouch was stolen from her handbag. It contained Rs 15,000 besides ID cards.
GRP officers scrutinised CCTV footage of the station and zoomed in on image of commuters trying to board the same compartment as the complainant. They spotted Ansari. Patrolling was stepped up and Ansari was nabbed last week from Dadar station.
