DD official’s car parts stolen at India Gate

An outing at India Gate proved costly for a Deputy Director of Doordarshan as a thief decamped with the engine control module (ECM) of her car, leaving her family stranded at night.

The incident took place on Sunday night when Preeti Singh took her family and sister-in-law Dr Neelam Shukla to India Gate for an outing, a senior police official said.

When they returned to the parking, the official said, they found that their car was not starting and later a taxi driver told them that the ECM of the car has been stolen. 'I have to admit that it was a shocking experience after joining recently on transfer from Ahmedabad. Thieves have became so bold that they are striking without fear,' Singh said in her complaint.

The car was parked near the crossing on Mansingh Road and Ashoka Road.

'When we returned, we found that vehicle was not starting. We tried to push start it thinking the ignition was not working.

'Then we linked all the anomalies like the car’s door was broken and became aware that someone had entered the car and stolen something. We moved our vehicle near Curzon Road Hostel while pushing to start it.'
