Many students taking to crime in City: Police

He did not believe the information, but approached the police, fearing that somebody was playing prank on him. However, even the police team which accompanied the techie were surprised when they found the car parked at the spot mentioned by the caller with keys on front wheel of the vehicle.

They were in for more shock as the interiors and the deck were in tact and the thieves had driven the car for just 28 km.

Inquiries revealed that the car had been parked at the place for nearly 36 hours.

As the police probed deep into the incident, they started feeling that a group of students was behind the incident and the assailants had used the car to draw money from a bank ATM kiosk located on Nice road. CCTV images revealed that a young boy in a T-shirt and sporting a cap (may be to avoid being caught on CCTV) was seen carrying out three transactions, in a span of 12 minutes from 1.05 am.

Earlier, a gang had raided the house of the techie and decamped with valuables, credit/debit cards with their pin numbers  and sped away in the software engineer’s car. 

After thoroughly studying crime cases  on the outskirts of Bangalore South-East, off Meenakshi temple on Bannerghatta Road, the police are of the opinion that some students are getting into crime.

The Hulimavu police admitted that 'robbery and dacoity' are on the rise and they did not have personnel and machinery to man the vast area.

After Deccan Herald had reported about the increasing crime, Police Commissioner Shankar Bidari promised to visit the police station and take immediate action.
