After scanning surveillance cameras from several places across the city, the police on Friday had found CCTV footage of what looked like the chief minister's auto passing through the DND toll plaza at around 2 pm the same day. Just as we had predicted, it did not take too long to trace the auto, and it has already been found in Ghaziabad.
It was stolen from outside the Delhi Secretariat on Thursday.
Significantly, a real sword has been spotted from the vehicle.
The auto, which had become a symbol of Mr Kejriwal's "Aaam Admi" image' and which he was using extensively before becoming Chief Minister, was found abandoned in Mohan Nagar area of the district.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kerjiwal's stolen Blue Wagon R auto has been recovered from Ghaziabad's Mohan Nagar on Saturday morning. "Acting on this information, two teams of central district police immediately rushed and recovered the vehicle", police sources added. "It was parked outside the secretariat, about 200 metres away from the parking lot", he said. "Police teams were sent to these places including Meerut and Mathura", he said.
"We have verified it after checking the car's engine chassis number. It went missing around 1 am", a senior police official said.
The vehicle was used by the Aam Aadmi Party or AAP Common Man's Party to demonstrate its commitment to fight VIP culture and a bid to stand with country's middle class.
As soon after Vandana Singh got to know about the theft she reported a First Information Report (FIR) and urged the police to further investigation into the matter. This was the proof of Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi credentials.
