Bhubaneswar: The sleuths of Commissionerate Police here have apprehended two miscreants who were habitual offenders of looting train and bus passengers.
Their modus operandi was to first befriend the gullible passengers. After winning their confidence tactfully, they used to offer drug-laced drinking water or soft drinks and made away with the belongings of the intoxicated passengers.
While the two offenders have now been arrested by the Khandagiri police, looted booty valued over lakh of rupees has also been seized from their possession.
Interrogation is on to catch hold of other miscreants, the Khandagiri police said.
