Police statistics shows that 9,713 motorcycles and 624 vehicles had been stolen throughout the Punjab province.

In Lahore, 27 citizens are losing vehicles and motorcycles daily, Lahore accounts for 60 percent of stolen motorcycles while 52 percent of car thefts were from Punjab’s capital only. 

Only nine percent of stolen vehicles and motorcycles were recovered from Lahore, which shows poor performance of the Punjab police.
