A day after a 20-year-old man was arrested for allegedly stealing a Quick Response Team (QRT) vehicle, the accused told police he was in an inebriated condition and stole the vehicle for a “joyride”.

The vehicle was attached with the in-charge of the anti-auto theft squad (AATS) of the West district, and was stolen from Janakpuri, when the driver was having tea.

“The accused told police that he had a similar key to the car and stole it from a service lane near Janakpuri Metro station for a joyride,” police said.

Police said the QRT vehicle was privately hired by Delhi Police and was driven by a private driver. The incident took place at 3.15 pm Friday when the driver was away.

“A few minutes later, he came out and found the vehicle missing,” an officer said.
