4 stolen vehicles recovered: The Rajpur police today recovered four vehicles, one Santro car and three bikes, from Rashid Khan, resident of Raipur, Amit Kumar of Rajpur and Nikhil Chaudhary, resident of New Delhi. Nikhil Chaudhary is the son of a manager of Delhi-based Bank of Baroda. In his confession, he said he always wanted to have his own car. When he was quite young, his father would not readily give him the family car, Maruti 800. Once he managed to open it with a duplicate key and, thereafter, he would often drive the car in his parents' absence. It also gave him an idea to steal other cars in this way. He stole many cars in Delhi and had been arrested for that as well. He also built contacts with Rashid and Amit, whom he would at times hand over the stolen cars and, as a result, the trio would share the money by selling the cars. This time, he had come to sell the Santro car in the city.
