It took the thieves approximately 7 minutes to do the job. The vehicle was loaded with goods worth Rs. 3.5 lakhs which I was to carry early next morning to Gurgaon.

BHPian dinesha for sharing this with other enthusiasts.

My Innova Crysta ZX – Diesel Auto (2016) was stolen from my house at a gated South Delhi colony. It took the thieves approximately 7 minutes to do the job. The vehicle was loaded with goods worth Rs. 3.5 lakhs which I was to carry early next morning to Gurgaon.

Curiously, the guards at the colony gate failed to make note of the entry or exit of my vehicle. The theft occurred at around 12:57 AM. We noticed the vehicle missing at about 5:50 AM, Police emergency number was called at 6:00 AM. They came at around 6:30 AM. FIR was lodged and a wireless broadcast was made at 9:30 AM after repeated request to do so as soon as possible.

I always was in the misconception that gizmo loaded electronic vehicles with immobilizer and push start were difficult to steal but it took them just a few minutes. It is a self-driven vehicle and I never parted with the keys.

This post is a request to others to be careful. I learnt my lessons in the most expensive way. Geofencing, GPS, various Locks and faraday pouch are all essentials and please do your best to protect your vehicle. Otherwise, being stranded is a pain, losing money is a pain, suddenly having to buy a new vehicle is a pain, police are a pain, RTO is a pain, financing bank is a pain and insurance is a pain.

Thanks to dinesha again. Check out BHPian comments for more insights and information.
