During investigation, the Capital Police team managed to intercept one of the vehicles in Nalbari area of Assam and started monitoring minute to minute movement upon one of the vehicle whole day through GPRS device fitted in the vehicle.
The said vehicle was finally intercepted in Dangaigaon under Manikpur (Bogaigaon, Assam) after chassing it in eight districts of Assam i.e. Biswanath, Sonitpur, Darang, Kamrup, Nalbari, Baksa, Barpeta and Bogaigaon.

According to SP Amo ” The team was led by SI N Nishant & H/C N J Rai, H/C S Lowang, Ct T Tani and Ct H Kumar. This case is an example of brilliant team coordination with Assam counterparts especially OC Daboka SI Manjit Terang whose coordination with other counterparts i.e. OC Kalgachia and IC Gerukabari compelled the lifters to leave the vehicle on NH 27 in abandoned condition”.
“This area is heaven for four wheeler lifters who commit offence and deliver the vehicle on Bangladesh side in a day. Our team caught the vehicle just 20 km far from Bangladesh boarder which means another 15 to 30 minutes late might have facilitated them to enter inside Bangladesh causing interruption in GPRS system and failure of entire mission, informed SP .
The Capital team was closely monitored & guided by SP, both ASPs, SDPO Itanagar and OC whole of the day. The Assam Police & APP are putting all out joint efforts to track and recover all such stolen vehicles.
Meanwhile, SP requested owners of all types of vehicles to fit GPRS or other tracking and theft alarm devices in their vehicles to prevent and detect motor vehicle thefts.
