Nepalese Man Arrested 9 Months After He Drugged, Looted Delhi Businessman
A Nepalese national, working as a cook, drugged a 78-year old businessman and his entire family and fled with valuables, including a licensed revolver, police said on Saturday after arresting him.
The incident took place in December last year at the businessman's house in south Delhi's Chattarpur Enclave, where the accused, identified as Dhirender Sahi, worked as a cook, they said, adding that the accused was arrested with the help of a "Facebook post" after his friend tagged him in a photo.
Using the same modus operandi, the accused had also stolen Rs 1.5 crore from another businessman's house in Delhi's Sabji Mandi this year, they said.
With his arrest, the police claimed to have worked out two such cases.
According to the police, a case was registered against Dhirender Sahi after a complaint was received against him from his 78-year-old employer.
The businessman alleged that just two-three days after being hired as a cook, Dhirender Sahi spiked his food and gave him sleeping pills.
