In just four hours of a special vehicle-checking drive recently, Bihar Police reportedly nabbed as many as 65 criminals - many of them absconding, and recovered around 67 stolen or looted cars in the process. The drive was launched in a bid to check on the rising number of incidents involving vehicles used for kidnapping, looting dacoity, among other such nefarious acts.

As per a report in Hindustan Times, 67 stolen or looted vehicles were recovered during the checking drive and a mammoth 3,570 litres of illegal liquor - Bihar is a dry state - were recovered, along with 159 kilos of contraband and 92,000 in cash from the possession of the nabbed criminals.
