According to police officials, there were a number of undetected cases of motorcycle theft in Zone 12 of Mumbai Police jurisdiction. Acting on them, police initiated a probe to find the accused and subsequently arrested one man in connection to a bike theft, who spilled the beans on two of his accomplices. The police then seized a stolen motorcycle worth Rs 1.20 lakh from them.

The trio was apprehended and booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code for theft and produced before a local magistrate court, wherein they were remanded in police custody.
