Fuel thieves active in Mussoorie

Mussoorie, January 31
Residents of Mussoorie are facing a peculiar problem of fuel theft from their vehicles these days and the police is yet to apprehend anyone despite several complaints. The fuel thieves, who had been active in the area for the past several days, broke the lock of the tank of a JCB machine parked at the PWD guest house here and stole diesel from it.
According to PWD officials, the caretaker of the guest house this morning found the lock of the fuel tank of the JCB broken and around 80 litres of diesel stolen.
JCB driver Rakesh was informed about the incident and he filed a written complaint at the local police station. Rakesh said the JCB machine had been requisitioned for election duty and was parked at the PWD guest house for the past few days. He added the thieves had earlier stolen diesel from the JCB machine a few days ago. Though he had informed the police, no action was initiated, resulting in the present incident.
Residents of Indra Colony said though several cases of theft of drain covers from public lavatories had been reported in the media, the police was yet to take action. The police said investigation into the incident was on.
