Their passion for bodybuilding, drug addiction and greed for easy money prompted three men to allegedly rob a nurse of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in west Delhi's Rajouri Garden, police said Friday.

The trio, Tarun (21), Mukesh Kumar (23) and Manish Nishad (23) -- all residents of Subhash Nagar -- have been arrested, they said.

Based on a tip-off, a Crime Branch team laid a trap and arrested the trio from Subhash Nagar Mod in Rajouri Garden on Wednesday night, Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) A K Singla said.

The accused were involved in several cases of snatching and robbery in Delhi and Haryana, he added.

Around 7 am on July 2, the accused robbed a gold chain, bangles and mobile phone from the AIIMS nurse, a resident of Subhash Nagar, while she was walking in a park, he said.

One mobile phone was recovered from their possession while the gold ornaments have been sold off by them to a jeweller, who has been identified and legal action against him is being taken, Sinlga added.
