District South police on Saturday arrested four alleged criminals, including a jail police constable, over charges of involvement in burglaries and other crimes.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Omer Shahid Hamid of District South said that a few days ago, a robbery was committed at the house of Zohaib Babar Bhatti situated on Khayaban-e-Ghalib, Shaheen Crossing, DHA, in which the culprits looted Rs100,000, foreign currency amounting to Rs4,000, golden ornaments, two wristwatches and four cellphones, including Samsung S9, and fled on a motorcycle.

The Sahil police station registered an FIR and an investigation was started. Police tracked the number of the motorcycle via CCTV cameras, verified the owner of the motorcycle through the Sindh Excise Department, and reached the house of the owner, Saifullah, who informed the police that he had sold the motorcycle to one Moeed, who was a constable in the jail police.

The jail authorities were said to have told the police that Moeed had been absent from duty for the past 20 days.
