New Delhi, Apr 26 (PTI) A delivery man was arrested for allegedly stealing a laptop, mobile phone and cash from a house in south Delhi's Malviya Nagar amid the ongoing lockdown, police said on Sunday.

The police were informed about the incident on April 18, an official said, adding all the stolen items have been recovered.
