Two days after two policemen were nabbed for allegedly robbing gold jewellery, mobile phones and cash from a group of robbers, Central Crime Branch (CCB) police on Sunday arrested constable Syed Mohammad Rasool Saab (25) of Siddapura police station in connection with the incident.

Rasool, who was on leave, was suspected to have gone into hiding when the CCB arrested sub-inspector R Vijay and constable Yogesh on Friday.

Deputy commissioner of police (Crime) Labhu Ram confirmed Saab’s arrest and said it would expedite the investigation.

The case came to light on Friday when Hulimavu police arrested a three-member gang, including two women. The women, who worked as housemaids, used to rob houses after drugging the owners. The three policemen had taken several articles while raiding the house of one of the women. However, they came under the scanner when they were found to be in possession of the stolen mobile phones and SIM cards.

Child Dies in Mishap

In a freak accident, a two-and-a-half-year-old child, who was sitting on a motorbike that his parents were pushing, was killed after a BMTC bus hit the two-wheeler near R T Nagar on Saturday night.

The deceased Syed Jalal, was the son of Ajam, a resident of D J Halli. According to police, Ajam had gone with his wife and son to Yeshwantpur to get their ration card. However, their vehicle reportedly ran out of fuel at Matadahalli Junction near R T Nagar and stopped. The couple made Jalal sit on the motorbike as they started pushing it to a petrol bunk on the other side of the road. A BMTC bus, which was behind them, brushed against the motorbike, throwing Jalal onto the road. The child died on the spot from serious head injuries.

R T Nagar Traffic police are investigating.
