Ludhiana, January 9

Nitin Dawar of Rajguru Nagar has levelled allegation of bribe against employees of a BMW dealer and an insurance company.

He alleged that they were demanding Rs 1.5 lakh bribe from him to release his car which was repaired in the agency under insurance cover after an accident.

Employees of the dealer and the insurance company have categorically denied the allegations.

Nitin alleged that after his BMW car met with an accident, he took it to Krishna Automobiles, Ludhiana, for repair as the vehicle car was fully insured. The company prepared a Rs 8.50-lakh bill for its repair.

“Now, employees of the dealer and the insurance company are demanding Rs 1.50 lakh bribe to release the vehicle. I made a complaint to the CP, Ludhiana, who marked the same to the ACP, Licensing Branch, Ranjit Singh,” he alleged.

Rishi Bhaseen of The New India Assurance Co. Ltd. termed the allegations as false and motivated.

Instead, Nitin was not coming to collect the car and he has also not been completing the formalities required to release the approved insurance claim, he said.

He said the complainant, Nitin, would have to face defamation for filing a baseless complaint and he had already given his statement to ACP Ranjit Singh. Rajdeep Kundra of Krishna Automobiles also denied the allegations of bribe.
