Gone in 60 seconds: Duo stole bikes in less than a minute

New Delhi: Two members of a gang of motor vehicle theft who took inspiration from Hollywood movie 'Gone in 60 Seconds' have been arrested from South East Delhi.
Police claimed the accused did not take more than a minute to break the lock and steal a bike.
The accused were identified as Manmeet, 25 and his friend Sumit, 18. They were arrested on Saturday after a police team received information about their movement in Kalkaji Mandir area.
DCP (South East) Chinmoy Biswal said the accused love to steal and it gives them the thrill to break the lock of the vehicle and take it away swiftly.
They had planned to steal 50-60 motorcycles and then to sell them and buy a TSR so that they can earn a regular income by renting it at day-time.
They had another plan to use the TSR for smuggling liquor and ganja to make good money.
They used to target motorcycles/scooters parked in the isolated areas and kept a long watch before stealing the vehicle.
"They both were fascinated by movies on thieves and used to watch movies wherein lead character plays a crooked thief. They used to watch Hindi dubbed version of Hollywood movies also," said the DCP. He further added that they took inspiration to steal vehicles from famous Hollywood movie "Gone in 60 Seconds" wherein the prime character along with his associates steals cars within a minute. They had planned to steal one bike daily and were almost successfully doing that before being nabbed by the police.
