A team of cops from Indirapuram Police Station of Ghaziabad busted a gang of autolifters and arrested 3 members of the gang from under Elevated Road in Vasundhara. Seven cars of different make as well as drugs and equipment used in stealing cars were seized from the accused who were active in Delhi-NCR, said the police.
The modus operandi of the gang was to recce the soft targets and on first instance they would decamp with stolen vehicles. They used to hide the vehicles in parkings and public places so as to avoid suspicion and detection, the police said. The gang would later on prepare forged papers of the stolen vehicles and sell them off to customers as far away in north eastern states and Rajasthan.
All the accused are repeat offenders and have several cases of autolifting registered against their names.
