Mod Edit: Thread moved to correct section.
Yesterday at about 5:45 PM (14th December 2011), my Car- a Toyota Corolla SE Saloon Model 2003 was Stolen at Gun Point from my Uncle near PTV Station near Bahadurabad Karachi.
He had stepped out of the car, at some shops near PTV station but as soon as he stepped out of the car. Two Armed Men (Sindhis by their looks) held him at gun point. They immediately demanded Cash, Mobile phone and other valuable, which he immediately handed over along with the car keys.
They then asked him to get into the car with them. They then drove with him for about Half an hour and Hit him several times in the chest and stomach. One robber was driving the car, while the second was in the back seat with him. They were counting the money they had collected, which was about PKR 70k to 80K in cash. He also came across some cheques my uncle had with him, which were about PKR 800K but the robber were i think illiterate and also drunk because he couldn't read their value. He asked when can they be cashed and my uncle replied not now as all banks had been closed.
He also asked whether the car had trackker, for which my uncle replied Yes. Although the Robbers had plans to keep in hostage but some How they let him Go. They gave him about PKR 50 rupees for transportation and also his CNIC/ Driving Licence etc.
He immediately called me for Vehicle Dis-ablation and I called C-Track and Reported Theft. Although the C-track staff was annoying and was wasting time intially but managed to Disable the vehicle. The Car was recovered and was at home at about 8:30 PM.
The Robbers were so much excited with the Cheques, Cash, Mobile Phones (as they got 2 from him) and other valuables that they forgot to take his watch.
Although its Trackker System was not the Latest Anti Jammer according to the C-track Personnel. They manage to recover the vehicle. I called the trakker people at about 6:15 PM and they manage to disable the car within minutes (6:20 PM).
I tried calling the 15 Helpline but those Fools were Disconnecting the phone without hearing me out!!!
I am sharing this to you to warn you to please be careful as Law and Order is very poor and the so called Madadgar 15 is useless in real life situation.
The Car is currently with Trackker People because they wanted to inspect whether Trackker Tempering has been attempted by the the Car Lifters.
The Trackker company- C-track advised me to upgrade to their "Anti-Jamming Trackking unit". They say this unit currently is the best and cannot be disabled.
Please advise whether i should upgrade my CARS to this new unit?
I have a few Cars with C-track. Please advise soon.
P.s. I am not sure whether this is the right Sub forum for this incident. If it isn't MODS please move it to the Right Section.
