The arrested are Rafiq Lashkar (33), Mohammad Selim (26), Azizul Rahman (25) and Mohammad Razzak (38).
They all were arrested by the Delhi Police Crime Branch, Indian news agency PTI reported. They all started living in India illegally a few years ago and took to crime for easy money.
The accused have confessed to have committed over 100 burglaries across the country, including in Faridabad, Jodhpur, Aurangabad, Gulbarga, Vapi, Bengaluru, Pune and Mumbai, the police said.
They carried weapons and house-breaking tools with them and had even held people hostage when someone woke up when they were committing burglaries, a police official said.
