TRAILER WORTH ` 12 LAKH STOLEN FROM PANVEL
NAVI MUMBAI: The Panvel city police have registered a case after some unidentified people for stealing a trailer worth Rs 12 lakh on Thursday.
According to the police, the driver Shivaji Khedkar, 26, parked the trailer near Bharat dhaba on Panvel-JNPT Road on January 22.
He found out the theft after he returned to the spot on January 27. He later approached the police and registered a first information report.
“We have registered a case under section 379 of the Indian Penal Code against the unidentified culprits. We are now searching for them and hope to arrest them soon,” said one police officer from Panvel city police station.
“Despite repeated requests, people park their vehicles on road. They do not even install a GPS system in their vehicles. If the owners themselves are not bothered about the safety of their vehicles, police can do very little to protect them,” the officer said.
“Just f our days ago, we arrested a history sheeter and recovered 17 stolen two-wheelers from him. So we are doing out duty as far as possible. We want the residents and other people to cooperate with us,” said Sunil Bajare, senior police inspector of Panvel city police station.
