Police of three states track Bunty Chor in Karnataka

Bunty Chor, who allegedly stole an expensive vehicle from Thiruvananthapuram on Monday, has been tracked in Bangalore, Kerala Police said on Wednesday evening. They denied reports that the infamous Delhi thief had been nabbed by the Karnataka Police.

"At this stage, we can't say that Bunty is in the custody of Karnataka Police," Kerala South Zone ADGP A Hemachandran said.

Kerala Police had announced on Tuesday that it seemed Devinder Singh alias Bunty had struck in Kerala, having made off with an NRI's Mitsubishi vehicle worth Rs 28 lakh, two mobile phones and a laptop after beating surveillance cameras, bulletproof glass, burglar alarms and a remote-controlled entrance gate to the house.

Thiruvananthapuram police commissioner P Vijayan said Tamil Nadu Police had traced the stolen vehicle in Krishnagiri. "We had information that Bunty was moving in the Mitsubishi car with a forged registration number. On the tip-off, Krishnagiri police were alerted. They chased Bunty, who deserted the stolen vehicle and escaped in a Tata Sumo, which has headed towards Karnataka. The registration number of the Sumo and its driver's details have been given to the Karnataka Police," Vijayan said.
