Clicking a selfie on the Delhi Metro helped a US-based NRI woman recover a bag stolen from her hours later. The bag contained jewellery worth Rs 22 lakh.

The photo helped the CISF bust a six-member gang of women pickpockets involved in thefts inside Metro stations.

The CISF said they nabbed six women who would target travellers at crowded Metro stations.

Nilam Kumari, a California-based software engineer, had on December 9 filed a complaint that her bag was stolen near Central Secretariat station when she was travelling with her husband, CISF officials said.

They said they cracked the case with the help of a selfie Nilam had clicked on the Metro and given to the police. The selfie had one of the pickpockets in the background.

CISF identified the woman and apprehended her. She gave information about the other five accused.
