Two arrested for driving away with luxury vehicle

The Mambalam police arrested two men for stealing a Mercedes-Benz of a businessman that was parked at his apartment in T. Nagar.

Police said the businessman, Sriramkumar, was a Coimbatore-based realtor who visited Chennai frequently.

He usually hired drivers to go around the city. He returned to Coimbatore on July 28 and asked his driver to park the vehicle at his T.Nagar apartment.

On Friday, he lodged a complaint with the police that the driver had not handed over the keys to his manager.

CCTV footage

A special police team led by Mambalam crime inspector, G. Kannan, analysed the CCTV camera footage and made enquiries with persons who were on night duty in the area surrounding the apartment.

They came to the conclusion that the driver, Shahul Hameed, 38, had driven away with the car.

They arrested Hameed and his associate Thamim Ansari, 36, and recovered the vehicle from them.

The car was handed over to Mr. Sriramkumar in a damaged condition, the police said.
