Adilabad: Four persons including three minors were arrested for allegedly lifting motorbikes in different parts of Adilabad and Nirmal districts, here on Monday. Eleven bikes were seized from them and the value of the vehicles was assessed to be Rs 4 lakh.
Adilabad DSP Venkateshwarlu, producing the lifters before pressmen, said that the accused were Shabad Khan, 21, a resident of Badaka Mohalla in Adilabad, and three minors belonging to the town.
