Karachi Police Nab High-Tech Motorcycle Theft Gang

On Tuesday, police in Gulbahar Colony, also known as Golimar, apprehended a group of young, tech-savvy thieves specialized in motorcycle theft, document forgery, and online sales. Their sophisticated methods helped them evade detection by anti-vehicle lifting agencies.

SSP Central Zeeshan Siddiqui revealed that the gang operated through a three-stage process to generate illegal income over a period of time.

Initially, the gang members would acquire legitimate documents for motorcycles. Using these genuine papers, they would forge documents for the stolen motorcycles, making them appear legal and trustworthy. The stolen motorcycles, with altered engine and chassis numbers, were then listed and sold on various online platforms, deceiving unsuspecting buyers.

SSP Siddiqui noted that the gang was active in multiple areas of Karachi. The arrested individuals, identified as Bilawal, Shah Rukh, and Rizwan, admitted to tampering with and selling numerous stolen motorcycles.

Rizwan confessed to forging documents and selling the stolen motorcycles online. Bilawal admitted to stealing the motorcycles, often targeting specific models on demand. Shah Rukh, an expert in tampering with engine and chassis numbers, charged Rs. 3,000 for each alteration.

With the gang now in custody, formal legal proceedings have commenced against them. SSP Central emphasized that this successful operation is a significant step towards reducing motorcycle theft and fraud in Karachi.
