Two people, including a student of animation and films, were arrested for selling stolen bikes on in the national capital, police said.  The investigators have solved five cases of auto-lifting and recovered five bikes from them.

Sachin Sharma, 20, and Amin Khan, 40, both resident of Gautam Budh Nagar district in Uttar Pradesh, were arrested from Kalindi Kunj in south east Delhi on Saturday, said additional commissioner of police (crime) Ravindra Yadav. “They were involved in sale and purchase of stolen motorcycles through,” said Yadav. 

The officer said that they got a tip-off about two people coming to Agra Canal near Jaitpur on a stolen motor cycle. “We laid a trap and a person riding a bike coming from Kalindi Kunj side was apprehended. He was identified as Sachin Sharma,” said the officer.

The bike in which he was travelling was stolen from Vasant Kunj in south Delhi. During investigation, a bike stolen from Sector-10 in Gurgaon was also recovered.

Sachin told police that he used to purchase stolen motorcycles from Amin Khan. After receiving the stolen motorcycle, he used to upload the same on for sale. His associate Amin has also been arrested and three more motorcycles stolen from Haryana were recovered.

Sachin told police that he is a second year student of Animation & Films at C G Mantra College in Noida. He was living in a rented accommodation in village Shaffipur in Greater Noida.

He told police that a man named Mushtaq was also living on rent in the same building. Mushtaq told Sachin that his co-villagers were running a racket of stealing vehicles from the national capital region. Sachin, being a student and short of money, wanted to purchase a cheap bike. Mushtaq then introduced him to Amin Khan. Sachin was subsequently provided a stolen bike by Amin at a very cheap price.

Sachin is proficient in computers softwares including photoshop. He arranged dragon sheets from the market and prepared fake registration certificates. He also downloaded insurance documents and edited them to prepare forged registration certificates, insurance certificates, address proofs, election I-cards using the fake name of Deepak on a fake Faridabad address.
