“Efforts are on to nab Saleem Kabari,” added Dhaliwal.

“In another incident, Ajay, 21, and Satish Kumar, 26, were arrested also from Malviya Nagar area while they were on way to dispose of a stolen motorcycle,” said Dhaliwal.

During the interrogation, it was revealed that Satish Kumar was the head of a gang involved in vehicle thefts. Ajay has a motorcycle repair shop in Jaitpur where stolen vehicles were dismantled and disposed off, the officer said.

Police said that Satish Kumar is from Muzaffar Nagar in Uttar Pradesh and earlier worked as a Blueline bus driver.
