New Delhi: A senior Delhi Police officer’s private car was allegedly stolen from outside his residence in south-west Delhi’s Dwarka area today, police said.
The incident took place in the afternoon when unidentified auto-lifters targeted the Toyota Innova SUV of the officer, posted as Deputy Commissioner in Delhi Police’s security unit and made away with the vehicle without anyone noticing it.
It was the officer’s personal car, which he had parked outside his residence, police said.
“A case has been registered at Dwarka (South) Police Station and we are searching for the stolen vehicle,” DCP (southwest) Surender Kumar said.
Being a private vehicle, the SUV had no beacon light or any sticker for special access to restricted zones as such, a senior official said.
He further said, it is quite possible that the auto- lifters did not even know that the car they targeted belongs to a senior police officer.
