Is it not easy enough for the police to deploy some decoy vehicles on these roads? I am surprised that no arrests have been reported despite all the precautionary notices. After all this IS daylight robbery!

That depends on the nuber of FIR been lodged, I think the failed attempt also has to be reported to wake up the cops

Ridiculous! This is going on for so many days and all the police do is issue advisories? No arrests yet?

I would not rule out the connivance of the guys in the area police station/ local politicians. That alone can make these thugs so bold.

Definitely the local cops are on it. Else why would there be no action on this even after so many incidents and looks like it is spreading to different areas. If this continues, things might get ugly when some car tries to flee these bike guys and hits someone or the bike guys themselves.

I agree. Seems like atleast a few cops are in connivance with these guys. One of the incident posted on this thread had a cop near the place where these guys were demanding money and the cop told the guy that he could be in problem because his car was registered outside karnataka. They know the area where they are operating and the times when they are operating. I like Asdon's suggestion of trying to set these guys up and catching them. I'm up for this. I think we could form a group and set these guys up.

A neighbor of mine was coming on the Bannerghatta Road couple of days back and near the IIM campus, a biker started making noise in front of his bike asking him to stop the vehicle. My friend has recently relocated with his family from US and was carrying about a lakh of rupees that day. Also he had some of this kind experience back at US. He just did not bother to stop and maintained his composure, and drove with out getting diverted. Those chaps after trying for 5 minutes zoomed ahead of him and took a right turn towards puttenhalli near reliance mart. And the bikes numbers were in Kannada. This incident happened about 10 days back.

He has a new car and mostly drives alone. Does this mean that these guys are targeting new cars? lone drivers yes we already know that? should we give this feed to a new channel like TV9 who can give this more publicity and spread the news so that a general consensus is arrived and public also realises it. otherwise the sympathy of the public is always with the victim.

This is getting too ridiculous now.
Is the only solution that some of us gang up, roam the streets and give these guys a solid beating?

+10 for this and I am game for it, this is hard time to show the strength, only writing in blogs and making people aware will not stop thses guys from what they are upto, there has to be a challange from the common man, I am a peace loving person, but when I read this kind of incidents I could hardly control my temper. Guys who are ready to do some extempo round with the thugs, join in

The only problem is that i have an 8 to 5 (sometimes 8 to 8) day job, 5 days a week. And i am sure same goes for most of us here.
But, what we can do is form some sort of local area clubs. Exchange numbers and initiate a call-chain soon as something of this sort is spotted.

Maybe we all should meet up and decide on a course of action.

^ I am in Marathahalli and I am in. Anyone here knows the cops well in Bangalore. Will be good to have the cops called in too whenever required.

Cant agree more on this one. Have been watching them since their launch and the only thing I expect them to do out of these events is to come out with a story on how IT pros are frequently getting involved in hit and run cases and begging for mercy. They might turn the tables towars the victims itself.

I'm in too. We could form local area groups so that whenever someone is affected, the people who are nearest can reach the place as soon as possible.
