The high in demand Maruti Swift and Dzire models booked by prospective customers were delivered without booking after taking black amount about Rs50,000 to Rs70,000 in each car delivery case


Chandigarh: Chandigarh Police has arrested three senior officials, including an Assistant General Manager of a leading dealer of Maruti Suzuki on charge of delivering Swift and Dzire cars to customers without booking, reports PTI.

 

The high in demand Swift and Dzire models booked by prospective customers were delivered without booking "after taking black amount about Rs50,000 to Rs70,000 in each car delivery case," Chandigarh Police said in a release here.

 

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) CID Anil Joshi told PTI that the racket came to light after the purchasers who got delivery of the cars without booking could not get the vehicles registered with the "fake documents" provided to them as they were different from original documents generated in the name of the original buyers in the online booking and delivery system of Maruti.

 

Five such cases of sale of cars have so far come to light and further investigations were on, Joshi said, adding those arrested were AGM Sukhwinder Kanth and Sales Executives - Vikrant Thakur and Pankaj Sharma.

 

"More arrests are expected soon and the role of the dealer's management is also being probed," the DSP said.

 

Managing Director of the firm Ranjeev Dahuja was not contactable and the Chief General Manager Rajiv Handa declined to make any comment.

 

The release said all three accused have been arrested under various sections of the IPC in the case registered at Police Station Industrial Area, UT, Chandigarh.

 

"They managed to prepare fake insurance and temporary registration number to the customers with the help of other colleagues," it said.

 

The three who have been arrested were involved "in providing Maruti Swift/Dzire cars to the urgent/needy customers by preparing forged documents like fake insurance cover notes and temporary registration numbers," the release said.
