Delhi police nabs notorious car thief Manoj Bakarwala

North India most famous notorious auto thief is finally nabbed by the Delhi Police. The thief , Manoj Bakarwala (36) was involved in 300 cases of car-jacking, theft and attempt to murder during the past 14 years, has been arrested by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police along with his two accomplices.

Manoj, a resident of Bakarwara village in the jurisdiction of Mundka police station, carried cash rewards of Rs.50,000 each on his head announced by the Delhi Police and the Haryana Police.

“His associate Pradeep and girlfriend Tina, who is an MBA student, befriended a policeman who was taking Bakkarwala back to Haryana jail and convinced him to travel in their car. While they were on the way, they stopped at Sushant Lok to purchase some food items. Pradeep gave the car keys to the policeman and all except Bakkarwala went inside the shop. Manoj who was provided duplicate keys by his girlfriend then escaped using the car,” DCP (special cell) Arun Kampani said.

Bakkarwala is fond of lavish lifestyle and enjoys driving luxurious vehicles. “He has been bearing all the expenses of his girlfriend, including her tuition fees. He used to stay in rented houses in different towns like Dehradun, Karnal and Haridwar and keeps changing his accomplices from time to time to evade police,” he said.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav remanded Manoj and his two accomplices to 10 days police custody. Mr. Yadav remanded the trio to allow the police to probe their “possible involvement in a larger conspiracy”. The CMM also allowed an application moved by the police praying that Manoj be kept handcuffed during interrogation as he was of “a desperate nature” and had injured a sub-inspector during an encounter with the police last year.

Manoj has earlier been put into jail by the police several times but has been put out through bail. Last he was seen in May 2009 in Sector-22 Rohini, New Delhi when he gave a slip to Delhi Police.
