POLICE NABBED two youths on Sunday night for their alleged involvement in the theft of six motorcycles. The action came during a surprise check of vehicles on Sunday night. The four vehicles were recovered.
Those arrested are Pappu Nath, 25, and Jitendra, 22, both sons of Meharwan Nath, residents of village Gawakheda, Astha (Sehore).
During checking of vehicles on Khajuri Sadak main road, the TI of Khajuri Sadak police station and his team tried to stop two motorcycles to check documents.
The motorcycle riders tried to dodge the police by raising the speed of vehicles. Acting quickly, the police nabbed the two riders.
When asked to produce relevant documents, they could not do so. Superintendent of Police Anant Kumar Singh said after interrogation and investigating on the basis of registration numbers of the two motorcycles, police found vehicles as the stolen ones.
The Superintendent of Police said two brothers used to come to the City and used screwdrivers and pliers to break open the locks of Hero Honda, Kawasaki and Calibre motorcycles for stealing.
Of six motorcycles, three were reported to be stolen from Neelbad area on October 10, one from Kamla Nagar area and the two from other parts of the City.
Police recovered one of the stolen motorcycles from a pond near Neelbad, which the accused had thrown into, to hide it. “They don’t have any local link and belong to a tribe of the snake charmers,” he said. The stolen motorbikes were allegedly sold in villages without any proper document.
