Bengaluru: Bullet Khan, 2 others arrested for lifting bikes

Bengaluru: A three-member notorious vehicle-lifting gang which targeted expensive two-wheelers has been busted by the Varthur police.

The police recovered 16 motorbikes, including Royal Enfield Bullets and KTMs, worth Rs 30 lakh from the accused, who have been identified as Asmat Khan alias Bullet Khan, Santosh Reddy and Manjunath.





The gang was so fond of Royal Enfields and KTMs that they only lifted Bullets and KTM bikes to use them and later sell them to make quick money. That was how Asmat earned the nickname Bullet Khan for the collection of Bullets he had.
