Feel terrible for you man, at the same time i would advice you not to try & use too much influence on the search like you did to the cop that gave you the FIR. It just ain't right. contacts & money are to be used wisely & not to satiate ourselves. Make sure you get a new bolero without having to spend a pie, there are ways for that, use your influence(if you have any) for this & not to bully cops, that does not help you in any way, Just my opinion. cheers

P.S I see that you have come from exile...i was kinda hoping this event would just do that.

Khaadu, really sad to hear about this loss. And to top it, the frustration of not being able to do anything about it.

Scorpios, Boleros, Dicors, Taveras are very high on the list of auto-lifters. A friend who has a Scorp sufferd a break-in attempt while it was parked at his office in NOIDA. Fortunately he could not pry open the lock, but in the process damaged the housing.

My suggestion to all is to install the gear-lock immediately and more so instantly when you buy a new vehicle. Even before you take delivery, this should be installed first. Of course, it is not theft-proof, but will make that much more difficult to steal.

I for one have a gear-lock and SMS tracker installed in my Scorp after I read a series of theft of these high end trucks in paper.

Steer, sadly vasant kunj is not secure as you presume. I stayed there for 18 years and know how safe it is. Shalini Matto was raped and killed in broad daylight in her apartment in vasant kunj, several cases of chain-snatching, car lifting have happened and the police has been not able to do much about it.

Khaadu my sympathies. I hope you have insurance for theft.

Well,for the Non Traceable Report it is 3 months from the date of FIR,so just pray that u dont get the vehicle traced.

usually in theft cases,if vehicle is found within few hrs then there are not much damages but if it goes beyond few days/weeks then normally its without the parts.

I double that, please get a security system installed before you even take the vehicle home, new vehicles are most prone to thefts.

Gear locks are a big deterrent too, my brothers car got saved due to it, although the thief took away all the perfume and paper tissues and some toys kept in the back seat.

Khaadu, sorry to hear about this.

I would suggest starting to look in small towns around the Delhi area for anyone trying to sell an almost new Bolero for a good discounted price. A new car like that they will try to sell off rather than strip for parts. You may need to be the detective yourself.

Just came across this thread. Khaadu, really sorry to hear about the theft. Even our complex security guards are asleep at nights whenever i've come back late at nights. Hope you don't have too much trouble with the insurance people.
