MBA runs gang of motorcycle thieves, nabbed

New Delhi, March 28, 2013, DHNS:

A 27-year-old management graduate has been arrested at south Delhi’s Kotla Mubarakpur for running a gang of motorcycle thieves, police said on Thursday.

K Sanatomba Singh, an MBA from Coimbatore, led the gang comprising Rabi Masrur, Mohammad Amir Hussain and Asem Kanta Singh. All four hail from Manipur and were allegedly involved in nine cases of motorcycle theft.

“Fake documents were prepared for the stolen motorcycles, and were sold to a man named Abu Hassan at Meerut,” said Chhaya Sharma, deputy commissioner of police (south).
Abu would then send these vehicles by train to Manipur. “Abu used to pay Rs 40,000 for a Bajaj Pulsar and Rs 60,000 for a Yamaha R15,” Sharma added.


Police received an information that the gang would come to Sewa Nagar on stolen motorcycles on Sunday.

A raiding team  cordoned off the area, and spotted a Royal Enfield with Haryana registration number and a Yamaha R15 without a number plate.

The motorcyclists tried to flee when they were signaled to stop. The team, however, succeeded in nabbing the four.

“On verification of engine and chassis numbers of the motorcycles, the Royal Enfield was found stolen from RK Puram and Yamaha R15 from Hari Nagar,” Sharma said.

Sanathomba previously worked with Bank of America in Gurgaon and also with an MNC in Noida as an HR manager.

He was enticed to his friends’ lavish lifestyle which they maintained by stealing motorbikes, police said.
