Such incidents are generally committed by boys aged between 13 to 25 years. After the vehicle is stolen, the second link of the network works. The responsibility of this link is to keep that vehicle away from the reach of the police. Then the third link takes this vehicle to Sotiganj in Meerut and then the parts are separated there. After this, the vehicle parts are delivered to the fifth link of the network i.e. to the shopkeepers sitting in different cities.

Used to steal vehicles on demand

This network belongs to only one scrap dealer, similarly all the scrap dealers had set up their networks here. The scrap dealers had many experienced mechanics and technicians. They used to change the chassis and engine number of a parked vehicle in the blink of an eye. After this, fake registration certificates of these vehicles were also prepared from the computer. Earlier efforts were made to sell the parked vehicle. If this could not be done then the vehicle was sent to the warehouse inside. In the last 8-10 years, even on-demand vehicles had started being stolen. In this, if a customer came and said that he wanted a Scorpio, the scrap dealer would tell this demand to the thieves in his network and in the next three to four days the stolen Scorpio would be made available by changing the engine and chassis number.
