Notably, in last week, a gang of thieves allegedly decamped with a replica of the Nobel Medal and the citation, along with some mementos and jewellery, from Satyarthi's Kalkaji residence.
While the stolen items including the Nobel replica have been recovered, the citation that was stolen along with the replica has not been found yet.
According to the police, the three accused - Rajan alias Natta (25), Vinod alias Pinki (35) and Sunil alias Sonu (28) - are siblings and repeat offenders.
He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for his work to fight against child trafficking in India, which he shared with Pakistan's child education activist Malala Yousafzai, who was chosen for her work on female education. "Ten teams were working on the case", he added.
Police confirmed that they had recovered the replica and other items from Satyarthi's home, and arrested three brothers suspected of carrying out the burglary.

He further said that being a police constable's son, he always had faith in the security agencies of the country. The burglary took place in the wee hours of February 7 and police received information about the theft at Satyarthi's flat in Aravali Apartments around 9 am.
While Satyarthi thanked Delhi Police for its speedy probe and recovery of the Nobel replica, he had said he is hopeful the citation too would be recovered soon. "Proud that Delhi Police recovered it in quick time". The accused told the police that they were familiar with the topography of the area as they used to live in the slums around the apartment complex till 2005 when these were demolished. He admitted to the police that his brothers were also involved in the crime, Baaniya said.
"The shoes had been stolen from one of the other houses that had been broken into and probably were left by the burglars since they didn't have enough space in their bag", he said.
Satyarthi had dedicated his prize to the nation and presented his original medal to Indian President Pranab Mukherjee in 2015.
