An alert traffic Police Sub-Inspector cracked a scooter theft case during a special drive against defective number plates on Pottery Road on November 20.

Sub-Inspector Lakshminarayana stopped a scooter to check a defective number plate. The rider fled after abandoning the bike.

On checking, Lakshminarayana realised that it was a stolen scooter with a fake registration plate.

He traced the actual registration number of the scooter and handed the vehicle over to Banaswadi police station where the scooter theft case was registered.

Banaswadi police are trying to track down the person who was riding the vehicle at the time it was stopped by Sub-Inspector Lakshminarayana.

DCP (Traffic East division) Kuldeep Kumar Jain appreciated Sub-Inspector Lakshminarayana for cracking the case.
