Gurugram, October 20

A trailer driver and his associate were arrested for allegedly robbing a trailer carrying new cars worth Rs 40 lakh and today sent to judicial custody.

The police have recovered four new cars with trailer from their possession. The arrested accused have been identified as Ankit alias Amarjit Singh and Jitender alias Mukesh alias JK, natives of UP.

Amarjit was working as a driver in Sandeep logistic company, Manesar, and departed with trailer loaded with four new cars —- two Ciaz, one Breezza and one Ignis —- for Gujarat on September 29 but did not reach till October 1.

The logistics firm tried to contact the driver but failed and the location of trailer's GPS was also found in Panchgaon near Manesar but trailer was not found anywhere. Finally, Kashmiri Lal, owner of Sandeep Logistics, filed a complaint with the Kherki Daula police station.

The police finally nabbed both accused who confessed that they wanted to sell the new cars. While Ciaz were hidden in UP, Brezza was in Haridwar and they bandoned Ignis with trailer at the Agra-Sikanderpur road.

"Jitender had criminal background and has been booked in cases of theft and under the gangster Act in UP. Ankit was also accused of carrying illegal weapon and theft cases. The accused were arrested on October 16 and after three days' police remand were produced in a city court today," said Preet Pal Singh Sangwan, ACP, crime.
