Davinder aka Bunty ‘chor’ once again outsmarted Haryana Police on Monday, when he sent them on a wild goose chase, while they were trying to nab him.
Despite their meticulous efforts and a chase of several kilometers, the police were not able to catch hold of Bunty, who featured in season-4 of TV show Big Boss.
The super chor was driving a Maruti SX4 (DL-3CAW 8065), stolen from south Delhi’s New Friends Colony (NFC).
Though senior officers in Delhi Police confirmed the lifting of an SX4 from the NFC locality, they did not confirm that the car was stolen by Bunty.
The Haryana Police, however, claimed that the carjacker they were chasing was Bunty.
Notably, several teams of the south Delhi police have been looking for Bunty since they established his involvement in a carjacking case registered at the Safdarjung Enclave police station in December last year.
When asked about the series of the events, a senior Haryana Police officer said a Palwal jeweller jeweller called them around 11am, informing them that Bunty had tried to sell them several pieces of jewellery and later stolen and fled in a car.
The police flashed the information to Faridabad police, who tried to stop the him as he fled towards Sohna road, and diverted to Faridabad’s Mujesar area, where the cops had put up barricades. But he hit the barricades and managed to escape.
“One of the tyres of his car soon burst, and we continued to chase him”, said Sandeep Mor, SHO, Mujesar police station, Faridabad.
Bunty finally abandoned the car in Parvartiya colony under Saran police station around 12pm and fled the spot. The cops launched a massive search in the area, but could not trace him.
The police later came to know that the car had been stolen from at 6am on Monday.
“The car belongs to one Bharat Kumar of New Friends Colony,” said Sandeep Mor, SHO, Mujesar.
“A man was waiting in an SX4 car outside our jewellery showroom at 9am. The showroom was closed at that time. Then he returned at 11am and identified himself as an employee of the Royal Nepal Police,” Dehriya Bharadwaj of Anupam Jewellers, Palwal said.
“I recognised him as Bunty chor as I had seen him in Big Boss,” he said. “We tried to stop him, hoping that police would come and arrest him,” he added.
