Laws of economics in stealing cars too

According to the police, the gang of vehicle lifters also followed the principle of demand and supply, when they make plans to steal a vehicle in different parts of the state. The gang members used to conduct a “market survey” to ascertain which were the vehicles demanded most by the people and used to steal those specific brands. The police in Bulandshahar district nabbed gang leader Bhishm and some others and recovered stolen vehicles, including trucks. The gang was active in Ghaziabad, Meerut, Muzzafarnagar and other districts, mainly in the western region.

“They (gang members) used to steal that particular vehicle and supply the same to the middlemen, who in turn used to supply them to the buyers,” police officials said. The middlemen also used to place orders for a particular type of vehicle saying the “buyer” has demanded the same, officials said.

“The gang recently stole a particular brand of truck when the demand for the same was received from Rampur district,” the police said. Similarly they had also stolen a canter, a type of mini truck, after a “buyer” placed an order for the same through a middleman, officials said. The gang reaped a rich harvest by “stealing vehicles on demand,” police said.

Gang leader Bhishm told the police during the interrogation that they used to “get a very good price for the stolen vehicles” by following the principle of demand and supply. Besides one also does not have to face problems in keeping a stolen vehicle at a safe place. “The stolen vehicles were immediately delivered to the buyer through the middlemen,” Bhishm revealed further.
