I guess this is a very common in the NCR region. I hope the authorities take some serious action. We have been victim twice last year
1. First incident: (With my sister and jiju)
They both are in Air Force and posted in Pune right now. They bought a Black Scorpio around August last year and my sister was visiting her parents (my buaji) who lives in Noida in sector 29. so she parked the scorpio in front of the gate and when she came out to take some stuff from the car, after an hour the car was gone. They immediately filed a complaint with the local police. but the police never recovers the car, so finally she had to buy another one. Since both of them are in air force, they got the money through insurance but still had to put some from her side.
2. Second incident: (Our Maruti 800, in moradabad)
My mom, dad and brother went to visit one of my dad's close friend who lives right behind our house. But after that they had to go shopping, so they decided to drive to his friends place.
so after having a cup off tea and some chit chat they decided to go shopping and when they came out, they were shocked COZ our car was gone. my dad immediately filed a complain with the local police and came back home.
Next day in the morning one of friends driver came to pick his car, because he parks his car at my place since we have a big house with plenty of space to park.
so my mom told their driver about the whole incident and the driver told my friend. So my friend came and talked to my dad and took all the info regarding the car.
While he was going to his factory with his dad he saw a 800 by the road and immediately told his driver to turn around the car. And guess what that was our 800. My friend very well recognizes our 800, so called my dad and told him that he had found our car. My dad immediately left with his friend and reached at the spot in 25 minutes.
We were very happy that we found our car though it was damaged.
1. The ignition won't work
2. The ignition coil, distributor were damaged
3. The fuel door was gone
4. Fuel cap broken
5. driver side rim damaged
6. And a crack in the driver side window.
But we were really happy because we got our car back. And the most annoying part. My dad informed the police, so the police arrived at the scene. And when we were about to leave the (SI = sub Inspector)
SI= Sir congratulations you got your car back (sir badahi ho, gadi mil gayi apni)
Dad= Thanks (Dhanyavad)
SI= Ok, sir you need to pay 500 Rs for all the work we did, like the FIR and then my boys went looking for your car and bla bla. (sir 500 Rs bhar dijiye aur gadi le jayie, woh FIR huyi thi aur phir hamare admi bhi lage huye thay)
Dad= That's you work and i am not paying a single penny alright.
So the SI started throwin some tantrums to get some money, till then he had no clue who is dealing with.
Dad= Just get aside and let me take the car and don't spoil my mood. (Bhai sahab hath jayo aur mera deemag mat kharab karo)
SI= No sir that's a regular thing.
Dad= You know who i am? and then my friends father is an SO (Supply Officer, Who goes for raids on the petrol pumps and all) my dad's friend is a very well known business man.
So all three of them were onto the SI and dude his face was like (Hosh udgaye).
SI= Arrey sir ye woh and bla bla. Jayie sir jayie. pata nahi tha.. ye saab cheeze aap logo ke liye nahi hai sir.
So my dad didn't wanted to spoil his mood and left. And guess what our car was found like 100 meters from a police chowki.
which my friend recovered.
