NEW DELHI - In a bizzare case, a 23-year-old Delhi University graduate who wanted to impress his girlfriend has been arrested for stealing a car his father had sold, police said Friday.

According to police, accused Gaurav Arora, stole the car his father had sold to another person. He was arrested from Vasant Vihar in south Delhi on Dec 25.

Arora needed the car to impress his girlfriend, so he stole the car with the help of a duplicate which was with him, a senior police officer said.

The arrest came following a complaint by the new owner of the car.

Further investigation revealed that the car was registered in the name of his father but since his father was unable to pay the installments for the car, he sold it to one Sanjay who resides in Kalkaji.

“The accused stole the car from Kalkaji and was arrested when he came to a restobar in the Basant Lok market in Vasant Vihar. He was using the car (Honda City) with a fake number plate, the officer added.

Arora, who belongs to a well-to-do family, is now doing an event management course, police said.
