Palakkad native Vijay (20), Chittoor native Subin (22) and Thrissur native Binto (25) were arrested along with two minor boys. Five luxury bikes were seized from them.
Police noticed the five accused who came on two bikes while they were inspecting vehicles near Sree Sankaracharya Sanskrit University. The bikes did not have number plates. The accused tried to escape when the police tried to stop them. However, the officers chased them down. That was when the story of the theft began to unravel.
The gang came to meet the girlfriend of one of the minor boys on the stolen bikes. Police said that they have stolen bikes from all over the state and they used the money from selling the stolen bikes to lead a luxury lifestyle and for buying drugs.
One of the minor boys is a mechanic. He is the one who unlocks and starts the motorbike and takes it outside from where it is parked. They sell the bikes after taking them to Palakkad.
District Police Chief, K Karthik IPS, stated that there are still more accused to be caught and that a special investigation team will be formed.
