As the local police is yet to trace the probable gang of thieves,

who are frequently targeting the href="">IT

channel market in Bareilly,

another Dell-branded laptop has been reported stolen from the AP

Sales Corporation in the busy Butler Plaza market of the city. The

images of two women were captured on CCTV camera, who stole Dell style="font-weight: normal;">

Inspiron 14-inch laptop in the broad daylight of May

25. "This isn't a standalone case and we have filed a complaint

with the Bareilly range DIG, SN Srivastava who assured me of possible

help," said AK Singhal, Director of AP Sales Corporation.

The computer dealers of the area shutdown their shutters on May

26, due to police apathy and met senior officials. This is the third

case within the last couple of months in the market and the channel

partners and resellers are apparently unhappy with the police. "The

laptop has been valued at Rs 38,000 and was stolen at around 1 pm. We

have already circulated its service tag number-C4H2ZL1-to all the

association members and dealers in the adjoining areas and we have

also informed the Dell India," said Singhal.

The thefts that are giving sleepless nights to small-time

resellers. In Bareilly. "The entire computer fraternity of

Bareilly Computer Dealers Welfare Association (BCDWA) have kept their

shops closed to mark a protest for police inefficiency. The members

met the Bareilly range DIG and showed him the CCTV footage,"

said Manas Pant, Director, E-Plus Infotech and partner at M&M

Enterprises. According to him, nothing has been done by the police in

the previous theft cases and another case involving Dell's laptop has

been surfaced. "Such cases should be escalated to all the

associations, forums and dealers and the vendor company should also

come forward to track these stolen items," added Pant.
