72 year old ex lawyer thief arrested

A 73-year-old ex-lawyer has been
arrested in Rohini here on
charges of auto-theft. He was
previously involved in 90 cases of
auto-theft, cheating and forgery,
the police said.
Dhani Ram Mittal, a resident of
Bhiwani in Haryana, is a first-
class graduate in science from a
prominent college in Rohtak. He
initially worked as ‘munshi’ to
advocates and acquired degree
in law in 1970. He has also
practised in a local court in
Rohtak. He took to auto lifting in
1964, the police said.
Dhani Ram, a diploma holder in
handwriting from Kolkata,
allegedly forged compulsory
leave order for a Jhajjar district
court in late 1970s and then
presided over the court for more
than 40 days with the help of a
forged appointment letter in his
name.
He was arrested by the Outer
Delhi police near a shopping
complex in Rohini Sector-3 on
Thursday following a tip-off. The
police claim to have recovered
three cars and a motorcycle from
his possession.
Dhani Ram purportedly told the
police that he would mostly
target cars parked in and around
court complexes. He would park
his own car close to the target
and then drive away with the
stolen car with the help of a
master key.
