:When a team of Noida police intercepted a silvercoloured Maruti WagonR car at Delhi-Noida border, all it hoped was to seize a stolen car.
But the disclosure made by the accused, Ummaid Khan, who was in the vehicle, has left policemen gaping in disbelief. Khan, arrested on Saturday night, has confessed his involvement in 1,000 cases of car theft and that too in just five years. Khan, in his thirties, is a resident of Bulandshahr.

       Though Noida has been notorious for car thefts, the police took some time to believe Khan’s `strike rate’ of 200 thefts a year.

      On the basis of his confession, the police have conducted raids in Noida, Delhi, Aligarh, Moradabad, Bijnaur, Muradnagar, Rajasthan, Haryana, and Ghaziabad. Thirteen cars and a motorcycle have been seized.
Khan was wanted by the police in Delhi, Ghaziabad and Faridabad in over three dozen cases. He was jailed in 2006 on charges of theft.

       According to the police, Khan named his 19 accomplices who helped him carry out the crime.
