Truck driver Hem Singh Rawat said that the miscreants, who were traveling in a black Scorpio, took advantage of a traffic jam and stole the tire of the Mirage fighter jet. “As a result of the traffic jam, all heavy vehicles were line one after the other while the smaller vehicles were moving. I immediately called up the police control room and informed them about the incident. A police team reached the site and verified what I had told them,” Rawat said, as reported by The Times of India.

“Thereafter I went to Ashiana police station and handed over a written complaint. Thereafter I left as I had to deliver the consignment as per pre-set schedule,” the driver was quoted as saying in the report.
