Once again strange ways of Lucknow police are at fore. Even now, a whopping total of 630 vehicles are parked in various police stations of the state capital in an unclaimed position. The maximum of the unclaimed vehicles include 553 two-wheeler followed by 65 four-wheeler and while a dozen are of other types.
The interesting facts came to light when the SSP directed the District Crime and Research Bureau (DCRB) to prepare a data base of the stolen and recovered vehicles. Since, the concerned police stations didn’t care hoot to find out the owners of these vehicles, the SSP has directed the DCRB to trace the owners of unclaimed vehicles. The fact has also come to light that the concerned police stations have even not submitted the correct data base of the vehicles that are kept unclaimed.
According to DCRB insiders, unavailability of correct inputs, even entry of stolen or unclaimed vehicles has not been done correctly. This has made it difficult to reach to the owners of the unclaimed vehicles. SSP Manzil Saini has now directed the police stations to provide correct chasis numbers and engine numbers of the vehicles lying in their police stations so that the vehicles could be connected to the owners.
As per the DCRB data, Ashiana police station has maximum unclaimed vehicles at 48. This includes 45 two wheeler and 3 four-wheeler. Ashiana is followed closely by Ghazipur which has 47 unclaimed vehicles including 42 two-wheeler and five four-wheeler. Similarly in rural police stations, Gosainganj has maximum of 41 unclaimed vehicles including 33 two-wheeler and 8 four-wheeler followed by Kakori with 28 unclaimed vehicles including 23 two-wheeler, 4 four-wheeler and one three- wheeler.
