Haryana emerges as auto thieves’ paradise

Chandigarh: In a poor reflection on the functioning of the Hooda government, especially law enforcement agencies, a vehicle gets stolen in Haryana every 30 minutes.

In fact, Haryana’s millennium city Gurgaon has the dubious distinction of getting a vehicle stolen every two hours. Nearly one-fourth (3,000) vehicle thefts of state’s total vehicle thefts (12,973) being reported from the district falling under the National Capital Region (NCR) in 2012.

There was a slight increase in the number of vehicle thefts in Faridabad-up from 1,439 in 2011 to 1,495 in 2012. However, Karnal on the GT Road registered a significant jump in the auto thefts from 635 (2011) to 807 (2012).

Panipat, which reported 817 auto thefts in 2011, depicted a downward trend with 782 auto thefts followed by Hisar whose figures came down from 797 to 781 in the corresponding years.
