BJP MP and former cricketer Gautam Gambhir’s father’s SUV was stolen from outside their house in Central Delhi’s Rajendra Nagar, Delhi Police said on Friday.
The incident allegedly happened in the early hours of Thursday, police added.
“We received information that a Fortuner car was stolen from MP Gautam Gambhir’s house. We reached his house and met his father Deepak Gambhir. He informed us that he owned a white Toyota Fortuner. On Wednesday, at around 3.30 pm, he said the car was parked in front of the house but on Thursday morning, they found it stolen,” DCP (Central) Sanjay Bhatia said.
While the cops have found CCTV footage, they are yet to identify the accused.
Following a complaint by Gambhir’s father, a case was registered at Rajendra Nagar police station and several teams of the central district special staff and the crime branch have been formed to nab the accused.
“A forensics team was also called in to lift the fingerprints and footprints from the spot,” an officer said.
