2 bike lifters nabbed

Dumka, Sept. 12: Deoghar police today caught two members of an interstate gang of motorbike lifters red-handed while negotiating with a customer to sell a stolen vehicle.

Mahesh Yadav, 25, and his brother-in-law Harendra Yadav, 30, were part of a gang operating in parts of Jharkhand and Bengal, said Deoghar superintendent of police (SP) Subodh Prasad.

“We were keeping an eye on the arrested duo for the last few days and nabbed them at Harendra’s house at Basmatta while they were trying to sell a bike stolen in Bokaro,” he said. The police also recovered 11 bikes, besides fake sale and purchase documents, stamps, number plates, affidavit forms and insurance papers.

Prasad said the police were raiding several localities to identify more stolen bikes that were sold off by the gang. The SP added that besides Deoghar, the gang was also active in Bokaro and Dhanbad and in Bengal. The two arrested, who are being interrogated at Deoghar police station, have not yet revealed the number of men involved in the gang.
