The Bengaluru Police Team is up with something new that we usually don’t come across. The team has decided to dispose of the seized vehicles piled up in the Police Station premises.

2,536 vehicles mostly two wheelers have been auctioned in 50 days. This year in January, the police had around 5,667 seized vehicles and 4,956 two wheelers, 272 auto-rickshaws, 439 cars. All the vehicles other than the ones involved in pending court cases are being auctioned due to space crunch in the Police Stations.


Seized Vehicles

The Seized Vehicles are bifurcated in two categories. The first type includes vehicles seized from the accused involved in dacoity, mugging, robbery and murder. The second group comprised of stolen or abandoned vehicles having no proper documents.


What happens to the seized vehicles?

  • Vehicles seized in connection with any crime are kept at jurisdictional police stations until the case is closed. The court while pronouncing the final verdict, directs the police to what they should do with the vehicles.
  • Other vehicles are sold at a public auction after obtaining court permission.
  • An officer from Regional Transport Office (RTO) decides the cost of vehicles.
  • Any vehicles in poor condition are sold to scrap dealers.

Auctions

The police seek a lot of vehicles every day in connection with one case or the other under the limits. These vehicles are left in the police station premises. As per the rules, the vehicles should be auctioned every three months but most of the time these auctions are never conducted for reasons.
