Seven two-wheelers, together worth Rs 4 lakh, were stolen in five different instances from different parts of the city on Friday and Saturday. In all cases, the vehicles were parked in unauthorised spaces.

In the first instance, two motorcycles were stolen from outside the Baani Square shopping mall. Complainant Pramod Kumar, a resident of Mehrauli, said his Hero Honda Splendor motorcycle and that of another man were stolen.

Kumar said that since there was no authorised parking area, he parked his vehicle in a space where many other vehicles had been parked. “I parked my bike around 2.30 pm and went for a meeting in Sector 49, when I returned after 30 minutes, it was gone. Another man also had his bike stolen from the same spot. We registered the complaint,” Kumar said.

In the second instance, a Hero Honda Splendor motorcycle was stolen from outside the Raheja Mall on Sohna Road. Sachin Kumar, a resident of Ghamroj village, had parked his bike outside the mall on a service road. A case was registered at the Sadar police station.

In the third incident, another bike belonging to Panipat resident Parveen Kumar was stolen from outside the court premises when he was in a meeting with his lawyer. “We checked to see if there were any CCTV cameras installed nearby, but couldn’t obtain any footage,” Dham Singh, investigating officer from Shivaji Nagar police station, said.

In the fourth case, the bike of Amar Colony resident Parveen Kumar was stolen from outside his rented accommodation on Friday afternoon.

The sixth bike to be stolen on Saturday was that of Sanjay Kumar Tripathi, a resident of Ashok Vihar, Phase-3. The incident took place when he was buying vegetables at the local market on Saturday evening.

Devender Singh Saini a resident of Rajeev Nagar reported his Activa scooter missing at Sector 14 police station.

The police said they have registered all cases under Section 379 (theft) and are checking the CCTV footages in the concerned area to identify and nab the accused. “We have started a city-wide drive to check documents of all vehicles,” ACP (DLF) Anil Kumar said.
