The need for quick money landed two students of two prominent Noida schools in Delhi police’s net. The two juveniles had stolen a luxury SUV car from Noida and were trying to sell it to a Delhi resident when they were apprehended by the police on Monday.
According to the police, the two boys had stolen a Toyota Fortuner car from a Noida-based businessman on June 16 when he had come to swim at a pool in Ramagya School in Noida’s Sector 50.
“Subhash Rana had parked his Toyota Fortuner car outside the school. He kept his clothes in the changing room along with the car keys. The students took the keys and stole the car.
They also managed to change its registration number plate and parked it near their houses,” said Raj Kumar Mishra, Deputy Superintendent of Noida police.
Rana later reported the theft at Sector 49 police station.
After a few days of the theft, the students tried to strike a deal with a Delhi resident through one of their relatives who lives in Roop Nagar in north Delhi.
When the prospective buyer came to see the car, he saw the students trying to sell an SUV car and smelled a rat. He then called the police control room. The boys were apprehended and on interrogation, they confessed to their crime.
One of the juveniles is a student of Class 11 while the other studies in Class 10 in two of Noida’s prominent schools. Both of them used to come to Ramagya School to learn swimming.
The Noida police will now take custody of the duo and present them before a child welfare board.
The Class 11 student’s father is an engineer, while the other boy’s father is a businessman.
