New Delhi, March 8 (IANS) A man, his son and his daughter-in-law have been arrested for stealing vehicles they hired after drugging the drivers, police said Tuesday.
The trio, identified as Meharban, 50, his son Ishrat Ali, 25, and Ishrat’s wife Shahida, 25, were arrested in east Delhi after police received information that they would be visiting the area Monday.
“The three, residents of Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar town, used to come to Delhi in a hired vehicle and stay overnight in a hotel on fake names and addresses.

Then they used to check out from the hotel and decamp with the vehicle,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Ashok Chand said.
