Malla and Juber were eventually nabbed after Delhi Police received a tip off and went ahead to lay a trap to nab the accused in Paharganj. At around 7 pm, cops stopped a suspicious vehicle and it is reported that while the driver managed to escape, the occupants - Malla and Juber - were arrested. It is also being reported that as many as four vehicles and a pistol have been recovered from the duo.

With cases of cars being stolen continuing to be a raging menace in the city, it is highly recommended that owners make use of well-lit places to keep their vehicles parked, apart from other measures such as installing CCTVs and anti-theft devices which include tamper-proof GPS location service.
