How blood drops helped cops reach a cellphone thief


It took more than a dozen blood droplets splattered on the road for nearly 100 metres to trace a grievously injured 25-year-old man, accused of breaking into an Uber driver’s car and stealing his mobile at knife point along with his co-accused, hiding inside a park.

Officers said that the incident took place Monday around 4:20 AM, when Uber driver Santosh, 35, a resident of Madanpur Khadar, was inside his car in North Delhi’s Sarai Rohilla when two persons arrived on a scooty and broke the side-window glass of the vehicle by hurling a stone at it. They pointed a sharp-edged weapon at the driver and robbed him of his mobile.

DCP (North) Sagar Singh Kalsi said the complainant chased the duo in his vehicle. After a while, the scooty of the robbers fell and collided with the complainant’s vehicle.

“Since both the accused persons were armed, the Uber driver took a turn and made a PCR call, which rushed to the spot. However, the robbers had already fled the spot,” said the DCP.

A team was formed to trace the accused. “Before checking the CCTV footage, police was told by the complainant that one of the accused sustained injuries on his head during the collision…minutes later, we saw a few large blood stains on the road,” said an officer.

The officer said the police kept following the trail of the blood droplets for 100 metres, which eventually led them to a park where Rahul alias Suraj was hiding between two trees. He was taken to a hospital. “The robbed mobile of the driver was recovered from co-accused Imran’s house but he was found absconding,” said Kalsi.
