Professor held for stealing vehicles in Patna


The chemistry teacher of a local college in Patna Saheb, Prof Amarnath Gupta, was nabbed after a joint police team of Mohania and Patna raided his house in the Rajendra Nagar area.
Gupta, said to be the brain behind the vehicle-lifters’ gang in Kaimur region, was evading arrest for long.

The professor made an unsuccessful attempt to escape through the terrace of the house when the police, looking for two stolen SUVs (sports utility vehicles), raided his residence.
According to police sources, one Raju Kumar had lodged an FIR against Gupta and his accomplice Girija Prasad Keshri, a sweet shop owner, for selling a stolen vehicle to him on the basis of forged documents.

Raju, as per the FIR, returned the vehicle on finding that the chassis number did not match the one mentioned in the document.
He, however, failed to get back the money despite numerous reminders.
Kaimur superintendent of police P K Srivastava said the police were probing into the links of Gupta and Keshri with other gangs involved in vehicle-lifting.
“We stepped up vigil following an increase in the incidents of lifting luxury vehicles from Kaimur district in the last few months,” he added.
