Man concocted fake carjacking story, arrested
In a Breeza car “loot” case, the complainant has been arrested by the Salem Tabri police as he concocted a fake story.
Salem Tabri SHO Gopal Krishan, who solved the case, said the complainant Aman Aggarwal of Mahavir Colony, Bhamian Kalan, enacted a drama of loot and during probe, his lie was caught.
The SHO said the accused, who was in hosiery machine trading business, was in debt and was unable to pay the loan instalments of his car. To overcome the problems of the loan instalment and his debts, he concocted a drama.
He planned a conspiracy and sent his car to Uttar Pradesh on rent. On October 16, he called the police control room and told the cops that two armed men had thrashed him and snatched his car. The police accordingly registered a carjacking case.
SHO Gopal said during the probe, the claims of the complainant could not be substantiated and when he was questioned, he confessed to having concocted a fake story of loot.
The SHO said now legal action would also be initiated against him for misguiding the police.
