Mumbai: In the past less than three months, around 70 two-wheeler thefts have been reported at the six police stations, including Mira Road, Bhayandar, Naya Nagar, Uttan (coastal), Kashimira and Navghar, which fall under the Mira-Bhayandar divisions of the Thane (rural) police.

Over 26 cases have been reported at Bhayandar, followed by Kashimira and Naya Nagar areas in Mira Road. All these regions have received the highest number of complaints. The Honda Activa has proved to be the most sought after brand for thieves. This is evident from the fact that every third bike stolen from the twin-city is a Honda Activa.
