GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 25: Police on Friday said it has busted a gang of car-lifters in central Kashmir’s Budgam district.
Senior Superintendent of Police, Budgam, Aftab Ahmad Kakroo told Greater Kashmir that 15 cars were recovered from the possession of the gang and from some civilians who had bought these stolen cars.
“These include five Santros, one Tata Sumo, one Swift, one i10, one Maruti Zen and several Maruti 800s,” the SSP said. He said the car-lifters were being interrogated during which they were revealing the names and address of the people to whom they had sold these cars. “We expect more recoveries in the coming days. It is a big mafia,” he said.
The customers, he said, were lured by very low prices. “A Rs five-lakh car is being sold for around Rs one lakh by these car-lifters,” he said. He said most of these cars had fake registrations and the owners were unaware of it.
Police sources said most of the recovered cars were stolen from outside the state and sold here. Similarly, the vehicles lifted from the valley are sold outside. “We have forwarded the details of the stolen cars to the National Crime Records Bureau,” an official said.
Meanwhile, police also recovered a large quantity of drugs including like Spasmaproxiwon and Recodex. Three persons have been arrested in this connection, officials said.
