New Delhi: Their pas­sion for driv­ing high-end mo­tor­cy­cles drove these youths to rob bikes from col­lege stu­dents. Af­ter a spate of in­ci­dents in­volv­ing thefts of su­per­bikes from DU’s North Cam­pus, Delhi Po­lice busted the gang of three re­spon­si­ble for the thefts.

Ad­di­tional DCP (north) Haren­dra Singh said the ac­cused were iden­ti­fied as Sushant (19), Shan Mo­ham­mad (25) and Kamru Jama (23). Cops re­cov­ered four Royal En­field bikes, three scooties and one KTM and Yamaha FZ bike each from the ac­cused’s pos­ses­sion.

The trio came on the po­lice’s radar af­ter a num­ber of rob­beries were re­ported from Model Town area near North Cam­pus. In most of these cases, the thieves had stolen re­cently bought high-end mo­tor­cy­cles. The in­for­ma­tion was sub­se­quently re­layed to nearby ar­eas and a team, led by SHO Bu­rari Manoj Ku­mar and SI Pankaj Thakran, started gath­er­ing in­for­ma­tion.

On Fri­day evening, po­lice­men set up a picket on Nathu Pura Road in north Delhi. The ac­cused, rid­ing a stolen bike, saw the cops and im- me­di­ately took a U-turn and tried to flee but were nabbed by the of­fi­cers. Upon check­ing the de­tails of the Royal En­field bike that they were trav­el­ling on, it was found to be stolen from north Delhi’s Adarsh Na­gar on Jan­uary 29.

Dur­ing in­ter­ro­ga­tion, the ac­cused told the po­lice that they broke the locks of brand new mo­tor­cy­cles and tried sell­ing them in the grey mar­ket to earn quick bucks.

The stolen bikes in­cluded 4 Royal En­fields and a KTM
