Two-wheeler buyers duped in Jorhat

By Staff Correspondent

JORHAT, Aug 8 - An agent reportedly operating from a two-wheeler dealer at AT Road here allegedly siphoned off money collected from over 50 two-wheeler buyers in the name of getting their vehicles registered at the District Transport Office.

A police source stated that an investigation was initiated after complaints from people who purchased two-wheelers from that dealer and who did not get their Registration Certificates from the DTO office. The probe found that more than 50 customers were duped by an agent identified as Naidu.

Most of the customers used to apply for RC through Naidu, who used to submit the forms and documents at the DTO.

Naidu, after charging a fee from the customers, was supposed to deposit the documents seeking allotment of vehicle number and RC.

However, during the police probe, it has come to light that 59 customers were not handed over the RC and number plates as the agent reportedly did not apply for the same at the DTO.

The source stated that Naidu was arrested a few days ago after a case under several sections of the IPC was registered in the Jorhat PS following FIRs by a few duped customers. Naidu was later released on bail and investigation is on in the case.
