Ghaziabad: Car thieves steal the car’s ‘brain’, a small, easily removable part called the Engine Control Module (ECM), from 4-5 vehicles which practically paralyzes the vehicle in Ghaziabad. Worried over the theft of as many as five ECM in one night from cars parked in the streets in front of the owners’ respective houses at Sector 1, Vaishali on Friday night, the residents of the sector have demanded a thorough investigation from the police.
We have sought a thorough investigation into the incidents of car ECM theft that took place on Friday night, approximately between 1 am and 1,30 am. All the cars were parked on the street in front of their owners’ respective houses. The thieves were so adept that neither the centralized lock system work nor the security alarm rang in any of the cars. The modus operandi clearly indicates the persons involved are professionals.
The car owners Prashant Verma, Vaishali, Ghaziabad lodged police complaints individually after the incident.
