The Mumbai Police has arrested Abhimanyu Gupta, a TikTok user with over 9 lakh followers. On January 19th, an elderly couple reported that a robber had broken into their house and stolen goods worth Rs. 4.75 lakhs. CCTV images showed pictures of Abhimanyu, who was taken into custody after an investigation.

A police officer reported: “The initial footage was not clear and we were unable to identify him. However, when we scanned some more CCTV footage we finally found a clear image of him. With the help of human intelligence and CCTV camera footage, we arrested him from Kurla. While we had arrested him on May 28, we could not recover the stolen property from him. After days of questioning, Gupta finally broke down and revealed that he had given the gold and phone to one of his friends.”

The stolen items were found in Abhimanyu’s friend’s house. The friend revealed that Abhimanyu had said that the items belonged to his wife and had asked him to keep it for a few days. Investigating Officer Hari Biradar said: “This accused is a habitual thief and has four to five cases against him. He was produced before the court on Wednesday and has been remanded in judicial custody. We are investigating if he has committed any more crimes in our jurisdiction.”
