**Modus operandi of the recent reports of extorting money by a motorcycle gang


The group usually targets cars with single occupants during day time. They signal the driver to stop, by continuously honking from the rear of the car. They scare the occupant by stating that they have caused an accident on the way resulting in an injury to someone and force the driver to withdraw money from ATMs and part with their valuables.

The group is known to use vehicles with registration plates in Kannada, making it difficult for most people to read.
