Kunal alias Tanuj - who had been involved in more than 500 cases of auto lifting from Delhi and neighbouring states - gave the Delhi Police sleepless nights until October 13, the day he was arrested from Kalkaji.

The police have seized 12 cars following the arrests. The arrested was infamous as "super-chor".

He was involved in more than 62 cases of auto-lifting in different areas in Delhi and neighbouring states, the police said.

According to police, the car-lifter to evade arrest had gone through a plastic surgery.

A police officer told about Kunal's method of working.

Kunal started his journey with petty thefts but soon earned the tag of "superchor" in Delhi.

Baaniya said that once the accused got hold of the documents, they would find similar cars and then steal them. The duo that used to buy cars from Kunal is from Uttar Pradesh (UP). In order to escape, he had also attempted suicide in the lock-up of CR Park police station. Kunal was wanted in more than 67 vehicle stealing cases in Delhi-NCR.

The police had got a tip-off that Kunal would visit Kalkaji on October 13. But the law finally caught up with him. The truth about the plastic surgery came to light when the police again arrested him recently.

They would then change the chassis and engine number of the vehicles and sell them in the market. The officer was quoted by the Indian Express as saying, "While the "total loss" vehicle is disposed of as scrap, the documents of the vehicles were retained".

During the interrogation, Kunal confessed that he has stolen more than 100 cars since February 2017.

Finally, a network of auto dealers spread across the country who would sell these vehicles as genuine ones. He allegedly had a lavish lifestyle and began stealing cars too.
