Three men held; 10 stolen cars recovered

The Central Division police arrested three men and recovered 10 cars worth Rs 60 lakh. The suspects have been identified as Moin Ahmed, 32, a resident of Shivajinagar and a scrap dealer; Nadeem Pasha, 36, a resident of Thanisandra; and Suhail Shariff, 28, a native of Mysuru. Another suspect, Ansar Pasha, is at large.

Based on a tip-off, the police arrested Moin Ahmed near Residency Road, while he was trying to sell a stolen car. During interrogation, he told the police that Ansar Pasha stole cars from Mysuru and handed it over to Nadeem Pasha and Shariff who removed the chassis and registration numberplate of the vehicles.

They took the cars to scrap dealer Ahmed who gave them the chassis and registration number of the scrapped cars and fitted them to the stolen vehicles. The souped-up cars were later sold at a lower price to customers, added the police.

A senior police officer said, “The buyers wouldn’t have the faintest idea that the cars were stolen, as their chassis and registration numbers matched with the vehicles’ documents. The racket came to light only when we were tipped off about Ahmed trying to sell a stolen car near Residency Road.”

TV actress arrested
A smalltime television actress, who ran a prostitution racket at her residence in Vijayanagar, has landed in the police net. The police said they rescued a woman from Tumakuru from the actor’s house. The actor – the police refused to reveal her name – used to lure women with the promise of jobs in beauty parlours and later forced them into prostitution.

Six held, weapons recovered
The Byatarayanapura police have arrested Lokesh, Arun Kumar, Narasimha Murthy, Kiran Kumar, Nagaraj and Basavaraj, who were planning to rob people near Avalahalli main road recently. Based on a tip-off, the police arrested them and recovered assault weapons, a car and a bike from them. They were waiting to rob people returning home late in the night, said the police.

Around 11 days ago, the gang had attempted to rob a farmhouse belonging to Krishna Bhat near Doddaballapur. A case was also registered in this connection in the Doddaballapur rural police station and an investigation was carried out, said the police.

On May 23, one of the suspects, Narasimhamurthy, and Ravi, who is absconding, and their associates got wind of Nagaprasad, a private company employee and resident of Timber Yard Layout, having stashed Rs 7 lakh at his house. They hatched a plan to rob him. They packed a carton with bricks and went to his house. When Nagaprasad’s wife Suma answered the door, they told her they had a parcel and before she could react, they barged into the house and threatened Suma and his daughter with a knife, asking them to hand over the money. When Suma raised an alarm, the suspects took to their heels.

Narasimha and Ravi were Nagaprasad’s colleagues, the police said.
