Crime: Techie stole mobilephone parts from Samsung Warehouse arrested

Police arrested him, two days after four men including a mobile phone shop owner from Gaffar market, Delhi were held in connection to the case. 

An FIR was lodged by the police on July 18 based on a complaint given by a Samsung official who alleged that the mobile phone parts were being stolen from company’s warehouse over a period of four months.

"During investigation, it came to light that Samsung company's engineer Vikas Kumar Garg, aged around 35, was entrusted with the responsibility of locking the logistics vehicle using a special seal. He would steal some of the seals and keep them at his home and later collude with the vehicle driver for stealing the boxes filled with the costly phone parts,” a police spokesperson said. 

Reportedly, the techie worked in the Original Equipment Manufacturing department of Samsung. When he was arrested, the police recovered eight seals from his rented residence in Noida. The police told media that he has been booked under Indian Penal Code Sections 406 (criminal breach of trust) and 411 (dishonestly receiving property).

Four people who were arrested by the police earlier included Gaurav Sikka, who runs a mobile phone shop in Gaffar Market in Delhi's Karol Bagh, Ashok Kumar, Luvkush Singh and Ajay Lal.

“Luvkush worked for private company Dixon Technologies in Noida which provided electronic items to Samsung. His job was to ensure delivery of products from his firm to the Samsung warehouse, according to police. Luvkush came in contact with Kumar, who was a vehicle driver in the logistics chain, and together they found Lal, a local resident, who told them he knew someone (Gaurav Sikka) at Gaffar Market who would be ready to buy phone parts from them,” police said.

The police also added that they regularly planned theft of mobile phone parts from the warehouse and continued to sell these. It was bought by Sikka at Rs 1,000 per octa (display screen) which originally costs Rs 2,250 per piece.

“Total 22 boxes of mobile phone parts pegged worth Rs 80 lakh were stolen by them. Eighteen boxes were recovered on July 18 and Rs 20 lakh that were earned by them by selling the remaining parts have also been seized,” India Today reported.
