Duo held for stealing car parts
Rajarhat: Two men were arrested for allegedly stealing wheels and music systems from parked cars in Raigachi on the fringes of Rajarhat.
Subhankar Ghosh, 28, of Madhyamgram, and Abhijit Prasad, 34, of Rajarhat were picked up by cops who spotted them trying to steal the wheels of a car parked by the roadside.
The duo allegedly tried to flee on spotting the patrol vehicle but the police gave chase.
An officer of the Bidhannagar Commissionerate said the two had stolen wheels and music systems from several cars, many of them new. "They carried jacks with which they raised the cars and opened the wheels, propping the car up on bricks," said the officer.
Spanners of different sizes and car jacks were seized from the duo and 8kg ganja from their car.
