Minister of State for Home G. Kishan Reddy on Tuesday informed the Lok Sabha that the number of thefts during marriage ceremonies in the national capital has declined as only 13 such cases were reported in 2018, while the number was 21 in 2017.

"As reported by Delhi Police, the number of theft cases in marriage ceremonies reported to them during 2017 and 2018 are 21 and 13, respectively, i.e. a decline of 38%. Of these 34 cases, 11 have been worked out and 21 persons have been arrested," Reddy said in reply to a written question.
