A man whose business suffered financial losses, decided to rent a car and sell it to multiple people, according to police in India.

28-year-old Mintoo Kumar of Delhi, who owns and operates a massage parlor and spa, decided to make some extra income by selling a car that does not belong to him in order to have money to operate his business.

Kumar rented a car and then put it up for sale on an Internet auction site, where he posed as the owner of the vehicle. A person bought the vehicle, and Kumar handed it over to him.

Seven hours later, Kumar stole the vehicle by using a spare key to open the door and start the engine. He tracked the vehicle throughout a GPS.

Kumar then put the car up for sale again. Police arrested Kumar, after receiving a tip from a member of the public. When Kumar was arrested, he told police that he needed money to operate his massage parlor, which suffered losses.
