Jamshedpur, Jan 25 (PTI) A gang of robbers was busted on Tuesday with the arrest of its four members, including a minor, for allegedly stealing 35 mobile phones from the busy Sakchi market here, a police officer said. The gang from Sahibganj district had engaged the minor in robbing people of their mobile phones, the officer said.

Addressing a press conference here, Gupta said a special police team was constituted on the directive of Senior Superintendent of Police, Dr. M Tamil Vanan, to bust the gang given the increasing incidents of mobile theft.
