3 from Assam arrested for stealing sports bike

Guwahati: Three Assam fraudsters were apprehended by a team from the Navi Mumbai Crime Branch Unit-2, who pretended to be prospective buyers on Olx and then decamped with sports bikes after taking a trial ride.

The accused was found with a total of five bikes, two of which were stolen last month at the Khandeshwar and Nerul police stations.

The owners of three more recovered bikes are being tracked down, official stated.

The arrested accused identified as Abdul Mujumdar (28), Abdul Lashkar (26) and Hujjarhul Choudhary (26), confessed to defrauding two people in Khandeshwar and Nerul and then escaping with their KTM sport bikes.

According to official, they utilised Olx to contact bike owners, and after meeting them, they would request a trial ride and then flee with the bike.

However, it was tough to track them down because, in order to target a bike owner, they would purchase a cheap phone and a SIM card and then destroy them after completing their goal, official added.

“We identified three suspects based on CCTV camera surveillance on the streets, who were the same people who had defrauded bike owners in Nerul and Khandeshwar”, said official.

Meanwhile, arrested accused confessed of using their bike’s registration number plate on the five stolen bikes and sending them as goods parcels by train from Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT) to Kamakhya junction in Assam after being apprehended in police custody, official  added.

Furthermore, soon after, criminal branch unit-2 senior inspector Giridhar Gore and his team contacted with officials at the LTT goods parcel department as well as at Kamakhya junction in Assam, and the five KTM sports bikes worth Rs 5.50 lakh were recovered, official claimed.
