NEW DELHI: Two juveniles have been apprehended for allegedly burgling a house in the absence of its owner in southwest Delhi's Kakrola area, police said on Saturday.
A 29-year-old goldsmith, Suraj, was also arrested for buying the stolen jewellery, they said.
The matter was reported to police on Wednesday by Ravi Kumar, 28, who alleged that the house where the theft took place belonged to his in-laws.
