The Ghaziabad police on Sunday arrested three members of a vehicle lifting gang and recovered two cars and ten bikes from their possession. According to the police, the gang picked up bikes and cars and parked them in isolated plots or industrial areas before disposing them off to customers on fake registration documents.
The police arrested Rajesh, Gaurav Singh and Mohammad Sameer in connection with the vehicle thefts and recovered 10 bikes and two cars, a Wagon-R and Hyundai Accent, on their instance from isolated plots in industrial areas in Kavi Nagar.
“The men stole bikes and cars. One of them used to unlock vehicles while the rest would follow the vehicle owners and kept an eye on him if he was to return soon back to his vehicle. Once stolen, they parked bikes in isolated areas and also sold them to different customers by preparing fake registration documents,” said Akash Tomar, superintendent of police (city).
“We will take the accused in remand and question them about their accomplices who prepared the fake registration numbers. They are yet to be arrested. During initial questioning, the gang members accepted of performing nearly 40-50 vehicle thefts within a span of a year,” Tomar added.
Out of the dozen vehicles recovered by police on instance of the three accused, five of these were connected to different cases registered in Delhi, Indirapuram and Kavi Nagar police stations.
“They lifted vehicles to earn money and to meet out their daily expenses. They have sold a number of stolen vehicles to people in Hapur, Ghaziabad and other nearby districts with the help of fake registration documents,” a police officer said.
