They revealed that cases filed against many of the thefts were registered against unknown culprits, adding that several neglected vehicles that are parked in many police stations are also registered under such cases.

Meanwhile, people have been requesting for help through social networking websites for their missing vehicles. One of the citizens lamented that the concerned authorities are not exerting any efforts regarding this matter.

Car ‘snatched’: An Asian winch operator, working at Kuwait Public Transportation Company, has filed a complaint against a military man employed in the Ministry of Interior, along with three other men and two women accusing them of stealing a vehicle.

According to the complainant, he was on his way to Salmi checkpoint to take a vehicle with a GCC plate number when the military man joined him in the crane. While he was heading towards the garage for seized vehicles, the military man asked him to stop on the side of the road.

He was surprised when two vehicles parked beside him and then the other suspects came out; one of them was allegedly carrying a pistol. They ordered him to off-load the vehicle which they took by force and then they escaped from the scene.

A case was registered and investigations are ongoing to identify the suspects who will be summoned for questioning to verify the complainant. The necessary legal action will be taken against them once proven guilty of wrongdoing.
