Bengaluru's Brazen Bus Shelter Heist: How Thieves Make Bus Stops Disappear
Bengaluru's Brazen Bus Shelter Heist: How Thieves Make Bus Stops Disappear

Bangalore: In a bizarre and audacious feat, thieves in Bengaluru managed to pull off the heist of a bus shelter, including its hefty steel structure, valued at a whopping Rs 10 lakh. This audacious act occurred just a mere week after the bus shelter had been installed on Cunningham Road, under the management of the Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC).

The incredulous caper prompted the authorities to register a theft case, with N Ravi Reddy, an associate vice-president of the company responsible for constructing BMTC bus shelters in Bengaluru, filing a complaint on September 30. Yes, you read that right, a whole bus shelter vanished into thin air, and it took a month for anyone to officially report the disappearance.

This isn't the first time such a baffling incident has occurred in Bengaluru. Back in March, a three-decade-old bus stand at the HRBR Layout mysteriously vanished overnight. The bus stand, which had been donated by the Lions Club in 1990, simply disappeared, making way for a commercial establishment. Residents of the area were left scratching their heads, wondering how an entire bus stand could vanish without a trace. According to BMTC officials, if the bus shelter had indeed been removed, it was likely the work of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP).

These incidents of vanishing bus stops certainly raise questions about the audacity and resourcefulness of these thieves. After all, stealing a bus shelter, steel structure and all, is certainly no small feat in the world of criminal escapades.
