A man involved in disposing of stolen cars has been arrested by Chandra Layout police, who also recovered two cars from him. The arrested dealer has been identified as Mohammed Muzzamil, 36, a resident of Kumbalgodu.

The man who stole the cars, however, has been on the run and efforts are on to arrest him.

On September 15, Muzzamil’s associate stole a Hyundai Accent belonging to Shashank R, bearing registration number KA-33-A-6302, from Nagarabhavi, where it was parked on the roadside.

An investigating officer said Muzzamil’s associate would observe cars unattended for two days and would tow it away in broad daylight. Onlookers would assume the car was being taken for repair.
