Auto-lifters set three cars on fire in Gurgaon
Gurgaon, Apr 9: Frustrated over unable to steal high-end luxury cars, suspected auto-lifters set three cars "ablaze" here, police said on Sunday. The incident took place on Saturday night at around 3 am in the Sector-15 part-2 area, just 100 metres away from the civil line police station.
"We have received a complaint and are investigating the case to identity the auto-lifters as their faces were not shown clearly in the CCTV footage," said a senior police officer. All the three cars gutted before the fire tenders could reach the spot.
According to a car owner Pankaj Singla, the CCTV footage clearly showed that a gang of two auto-lifters tried to break the locks of cars and when they failed, they set Bentley, BMW and Toyota Fortuner on fire.
" As per the CCTV footage, two car lifters arrived at the place in a Honda Amaze sedan ... and they roamed for at least 45 minutes to ensure flames do not get off. Even a police PCR van crossed the spot ... but cops inaction allowed them to flee from the spot," Singla claimed.
