Ramesh who resides in Korattur was into buying and selling used bikes. However, he resorted to stealing bikes and forging documents in order to be more profitable. To successfully escape from getting busted, he had to lean to forge the Chassis number. Hence, he found help on the aforementioned online media platform.

“He found it difficult to fabricate documents for stolen vehicles and took YouTube’s help in learning to remove chassis numbers,” a police officer said.

"He would first steal original vehicle documents from parked two-wheelers. Then, he would look for two-wheelers, the model as described in the stolen document, which were left by owners with keys on. After stealing them, he would erase the chassis number and print the chassis number that is found on the stolen document. He would give it a coat of paint if required and post an advertisement on OLX. To the buyers, he would give a fake Transfer of Ownership form. Since the chassis number in the bike matches with that in the document, the buyer would not suspect him. Also, since many buyers do not transfer ownership immediately, they wouldn’t realise that they had been duped,” said Villivakkam’s Inspector Shanthi Devi.

This way, he had mastered the art of stealing. Within a year, he has stolen and sold over 25 bikes. The police have found 12 of them as of today.
