“They would go to the vehicle owner’s home and collect the vehicle.” The owners would assume that the car had been taken away by vehicle recovery agents since the loan hadn’t been repaid. According to Madhapur DCP K Shilpavalli, the owner did not file a police report in six cases.

The brothers created a No Objection Certificate (NOC) and started looking for purchasers after stealing the vehicles.

They were both arrested during a vehicle check at the Raidurgam police station.
