Car thief inspired by Bunty chor who stole 100 luxury cars, nabbed in Delhi
Crime never pays! You might steal modest commodities or a luxury car in elite style, it still boils down to petty theft.

The crime run of super car-lifter Robin came to an abrupt end on Wednesday, when he was nabbed by the police from his hideout in Devli, southeast Delhi, where he had been living with his girlfriend.

Robin was infamous for driving into luxury apartment complexes in luxury vehicles like BMW and Audi and driving out in even more expensive ones. In his career, he lifted around 100 high-end automobiles, all stolen through a well thought out plan.  

According to the police, Robin was so inspired by his idol, `Bunty' the car thief that he always carried his photo in his wallet. Robin had watched the movie `Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, based on Bunty's life at least 25 times and tried to imitate his modus operandi.

After getting a tip-off, the anti-auto theft squad of west Delhi police nabbed him from his hide-out. A Toyota Fortuner and BMW were recovered from his possession.

Robin had recently driven to Noida sector 17A in a stolen Audi A7 and driven off in a more expensive BMW.

According to the police, Robin had been involved in crimes for the last 14 years but shifted to car theft only recently after meeting with master carjacker Manoj Bakkarwala in a jail.

Robin has confessed that he sold his stolen cars to one `Nawab', a resident of Udham Singh Nagar (Noida).

Pushpendra, DCP (west) said, "He targeted only posh colonies and house owners who were out on a morning walk. He entered their homes, stole car keys and drove away without blinking twice. He operated in Delhi, Haryana, UP, Chandigarh and Punjab."
