The Yellow Gate police have arrested two people for robbing bikes thereby recovering a total of 29 two-wheelers worth Rs 6.30 lakhs. The accused duo, identified as Meraz Shaikh (19) and Mustaaq Lalbabu Mansuri alias Salman (19), are residents of Mankhurd while Salman hails from CBD Belapur.

According to the Yellow Gate police officials, Shaikh is said to be the mastermind of the racket.

“A trap was laid by the police officers and Shaikh was arrested. During interrogation he revealed the name of Salman as an accomplice. Investigations revealed that the duo have been booked under various theft cases at different police stations around Navi Mumbai including Nerul, Belapur and Kharghar.

The duo, using a master key stole bikes from 2016 to 2019. A total of 29 two-wheelers worth Rs 6 lakhs were stolen from different locations around Mumbai and Navi Mumbai.
