    Bengaluru saw a significant spike in motor vehicle theft this year

    4,950 cases reported, according to data by Karnataka state police

    Overall theft cases in the city reached a worrisome total of 8,296

In 2023, Bengaluru saw a significant spike in motor vehicle theft, with a total of 4,950 cases reported, according to data compiled by the Karnataka state police.

This unsettling trend is exemplified by a recent incident in Channasandra, where a gang brazenly entered a house during the night, effortlessly stealing a bike. The CCTV footage of the crime revealed the perpetrators facing no obstacles due to the absence of people on the nearby roads.

Regrettably, this occurrence is not an isolated event but rather part of a growing concern that has taken hold of the dynamic city. The surge in thefts has instilled a heightened sense of insecurity among residents, both on the streets and within the confines of their homes.

The problem extends beyond motor vehicle theft, as the overall theft cases in the city reached a worrisome total of 8,296. Chain snatching has become a particularly prevalent crime, with 126 reported cases as of October 2023.

Equally troubling is the increase in nighttime burglaries across different parts of Bengaluru, totaling 966 cases, indicating that despite police patrolling efforts throughout the city, instances of robbery persist. The city recorded 546 cases of robbery, further contributing to the growing concerns of citizens about the vulnerability of their belongings.
