In a rare act, a gang of burglars broke into multiple shops in north Delhi's Lahori Gate area and celebrated the crime with a victory dance.
A CCTV camera installed in the lane captured the act of criminal revelry that happened on Tuesday, but the burglars had their faces covered.
The video tape shows the burglars break opening the shutter of a shop. Four of them move into the shop, while another burglar stays outside to watch. Possibly finding enough time on his hand, he breaks into a jig to amuse himself and celebrate the success.
"It is a rare incident. Usually burglars want to ensure they are not noticed when committing such acts. But this is rare. However, the accused has ensured his face is covered," a police official said.
The burglars decamped with valuables worth more than Rs 1 lakh from three-four shops, including one trading in computer parts.
Police said they were trying to gain information about the gang.
