Based on the images captured by closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras at the crime spot and possible getaway routes, a team led by police inspector-Pramod Badhaakh got hold of sketchy clues related to the identity of the suspects.

On the virtue of inputs provided by informers and electronic surveillance, the team apprehended three people identified as- Mohammed Shahid Allauddin Khan (44), Shankar Manju Gowda (49) and Shamshud Doha Raees Qureshi (33).

Apart from tools which were used for breaking open shutters and mobile phones, the team also seized a Bolero jeep which the gang used to travel from one place to another by changing number plates to recce areas for identifying potential targets.

The gang had committed similar offences in Mumbai, Thane, Dombivli, Bhiwandi and even Karnataka.
