Harley Street 750 (24)

The Harley-Davidson Street 750 motorcycle that we rode for an exhaustive review

The police has identified and nabbed the man who stole a brand new Harley-Davidson Street 750 from the two-wheeler maker’s Hyderabad showroom in Banjara Hills region. Surprisingly, the person who committed this crime is not a petty thief but an IIT graduate and is currently employed as an executive engineer with state-owned oil major ONGC. Even worse, he’s the son of an ex-army personnel.

The thief, identified as Turlapati Kiran, was caught in Mumbai after the police traced him with the inputs from CCTV footage and call records.

The episode began when about 30-year-old Turlapati Kiran posed as Tahir Ali, a potential customer wanting to take a test ride of the Street 750 before buying the motorcycle. However, he never returned to the showroom. It was later found that the details in the test-ride form were fake and it didn’t take long before a case under IPC Sections 379 (theft) and 420 (cheating) was filed against the thief.

The motive behind the theft is still unclear.

    An IIT graduate, with a good job could have afforded to buy this bike. The only reason I can think of for committing this crime, would be to win a bet or to prove a point to someone. Sad that he chose to throw away his career and reputation to do this.

    Unbelievable an IIT graduate with a reputed job will do such a blunder.

    You shouldn't have named his father….We should respect Army personnel's ,it was not his fault that his son committed this crime.At least you should not announce his name publicly.
