'Wherever they found a Bullet motorcycle in a vulnerable condition, they would unlock it lock using screwdriver and take it away. They sold these motorcycles for Rs 30,000 to Rs 35,000 and similarly sell of the cars at throwaway rates,' he said.
The accused identified as Ankit Singh, Saurabh Kumar and Abhishek Singh were arrested on Tuesday by the Bisrakh police station officials, he said, adding that their two more partners were held here earlier following a gunfight while they were in a stolen SUV.
The gang had a supply chain of these stolen vehicles in western Uttar Pradesh districts where they made deliveries 'on demand' by the clients, too, the police said.
