Hello,

Actor Abhay Deol's Mitsubishi Pajero was stolen from out his apartment in Santa Cruz West in Mumbai on Thursday morning. The 2008 model Pajero had a special Number - MH 02 BG 420.

According to Police Officials: The car thieves mostly park stolen vehicles at isolated spots for a few days till they prepare their forged documents. They then take the stolen vehicles to other states with fake licence plates. Before elections, the demand for stolen SUVs increases drastically. The stolen vehicles are used in election campaigns.

If we had working street lights in India, the CCTV footage from establishments nearby could help in identifying the car thieves. There are the CCTV cameras at traffic junctions that could help, as long as they are not dummy units.

BTW, don't the stolen SUVs used in election campaigns lead to an opportunity for rival parties to take photographs and put them up to create some negative publicity? Rival parties would even be willing to pay the journalists for publishing such stories!

But no party is immune to this na. Plus they will just say that the supporters got the car and the party has nothing to do with it. They talk themselves out of bigger crimes than this.

I apologise for quoting so many of you guys. I wanted to know what happened to the cars that were seized by DRI? No new news seems to be available on the web, regarding this Walia guy.

Just curious to know, if anyone has any info do share

Missing Ferrari !

Luxury sports car — either a Ferrari California or a Ferrari 458 Italia — had arrived in India around March or April, 2013. Sources think it landed in Nhava Sheva port in Mumbai, but no one came to claim it, as the Saradha bubble had burst by then.
Sen inmported the car through Saradha Tours and Travels in order to avoid paying huge duty. "Under an export promotion scheme, the government permits import of cars, sports utility vehicles and all-purpose vehicles on payment of 5% customs duty. The facility is given to hotels, travel agents, tour operators and tour transport operators," said a customs official. Individuals have to pay a whopping 105% duty.

Unhappy Re: Stolen cars in India

Some bad news from Thane.

The lake city has seen an alarming increase in the motor vehicle thefts and stands third in Maharashtra after Mumbai and Pune. The recovery rate also seems to be dropping substantially. For every 4 vehicles stolen on average per day as per 2013 statistics only one vehicle gets recovered which is disturbing news. The MUV's seems to be the latest fascination for the thieves with Innova, Bolero, Qualis & Scorpio leading the stolen vehicle pack.

The worst case was 3 cars being stolen from same building compound. Inspite of having the latest technology in the cars against theft preventions, the high end cars get stolen quite easily.

Gang of burglars with a penchant for sedan arrested
Gang had shot at a girl in Moti Bagh on Saturday for raising an alarm

A gang of burglars fascinated by Honda City cars has been busted after they shot a girl in South Delhi on Saturday for raising an alarm and foiling their attempt.

The suspects used the stolen cars to commit burglaries in South Delhi shops early in the morning, when they felt police patrolling was at its lowest.

According to police, the gang used motorcycle keys to steal Honda City cars, 10 of which were taken from Malviya Nagar itself. Six cars have been recovered so far.

“They found Honda City cars to be sturdy, steady and stable,” said Ranveer Krishnia, Joint CP (South-Eastern Range).

The gang had a special modus operandi for breaking open the shutters, prompting senior police officers to call upon shopkeepers to use shutter sirens for safety.

Police said that the suspects would attach an iron chain to a Honda City car using a hook. The chain would then be clamped onto the shutter on the other end. “The car’s force generally broke the shutters without much trouble,” said Prem Nath, DCP (South).

The gang, which is believed to be involved in more than 30 crimes in the last three months, used the same modus operandi on Saturday when they had targeted an electronics shop in Moti Bagh.

However, the noise had woken up Neeru and her father, who runs a Safal store nearby. The girl raised an alarm, causing the gang’s kingpin, Rohit, to shoot at her.

The girl was hospitalised even as the suspects fled with whatever electronics they could get their hands on. The girl is out of danger, police said.

Interrogation of the suspects revealed that all the eight members carried firearms and did not hesitate to shoot if they sensed any threat.

Officials probing the case have alleged that the day after this incident, the gang had opened fire on the owner of a Mahindra XUV and robbed him in Mehrauli.

The 25-year-old gang leader, Rohit, has allegedly been involved in several assaults on policemen too. In one such incident in Mehrauli, he had allegedly thrashed a policeman who had caught him committing a burglary, police said.

In another incident in Saket, he pointed a pistol at a constable when his associate was nabbed.

Barring some incidents in other districts, the gang generally targeted South and South-Eastern Delhi such as Lodhi Colony, Lajpat Nagar, South Campus, CR Park and Sunlight Colony.

200 high-end cars seized for evading tax!

http://epaperbeta.timesofindia.com/A...28012017007024

Quote:
The state transport department has confiscated 200 high-end vehicles--each costing anywhere between Rs 25 lakh and at least Rs1crore -and has prosecuted the owners for allegedly evading road (motor vehicle) tax running into crores of rupees. Among the seized car models are Porsche, Audi and Mercedes.
“The modus operandi was to get the cars registered in other union territories and states such as Daman & Diu, Pondicherry and Jharkhand where the vehicles attract a very low tax,“ said deputy transport commissioner Pradeep Shinde who supervised the raids in Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur and other places across Maharashtra.

Delighted to hear of this. Tax evasion is so endemic in our society that it is assumed to be the norm. Good for the Maharashtra police.
