Thenmala (Kollam): In a strange incident, eight two wheelers were retrieved from a pond in a farmland near Chengotta here.
The bikes were first spotted by Irulappan, owner of the farm land. He found the bikes when he checked the pond after the water level has gone down turning it unusable for irrigation purposes.
During inspection, he spotted a portion of a bike at one corner of the pond. Growing suspicious about it, he alerted the neighbours. During a search, they found eight bikes from the pond.
Following that, Irulappan alerted the police about the bikes. During investigation, Police found that four among the eight bikes were stolen from Kadayanallur, Achanputhur, Thambur and Vadakara areas. Investigation to find the owners of the remaining bikes is on.
Police assume that the bikes were stolen by chain snatchers and abandoned in the pond after use.
