Default The "Car / Bike got stolen" Thread

STOLEN: White Mahindra Bolero - MH 04 DY 1741
Engine No: GA94E48553
Chassis No: 92E89369

Hi guys...need your support on this one. My car was stolen from Thane last night(Valet parked at Mantraa restaurant, Hotel Dhiraj, Service road, Wahle estate).

If you spot a White Bolero SLX bearing MH plates as above - please notify me immediately.

If you spot a white Bolero in suspicious circumstances or with UP, MP number plates - please notify me immediately.\

Please keep an eye out while you are on the roads...means a lot to me!

That is really sad. Hope you have already lodged an FIR with the Wagle Estate Police? Also, I would suggest that you register your vehicle details here:

Thats really very sad. As I often go to this place for dinner on weekends and my car is always parked by the valets. The roads there are really very dark with no street lgihts but still I find it very strange as there is lot of traffic till midnite or so. I think it can be someone inside involved from the valet people. Will keep on looking for this numberplate though.

It's sad to hear that your car has been stolen from valet parking.
did you got your key from them, if so then check for wax or soap signs in the key which might lead to the people who has stolen ,if it was an insider job of the Hotel.

This seems to have been an insider job. This is bloody unfortunate! Damn - I am not valet parking ever again!

What does the hotel say?

Sad to hear that, hope you get your machine back in good condition. I'll inform my Mumbai friends to watch for this vehicle.

Sorry to hear about the theft. My two bits as below:

1. Lodge an FIR ASAP
2. Motivate the cops to investigate. Tell them if you suspect the valet parking staff.
3. Demand a xerox of the valet's driving license (Will be helpful in case he scoots)
4. Lodge an Insurance claim
5. Don't have high hopes about recovering the car.

PS: I'm sure you must have checked with the RTO that the vehicle wasn't towed away.
