Ghaziabad (UP): Four people, including a woman, have been arrested for allegedly robbing car drivers by throwing eggs, oil and similar things on their windshield to distract them and stealing their valuables, police said on Tuesday.

The gang was involved in more than three dozen instances of such robberies, City Superintendent of Police (second) Gyanendra Singh told the media here.
