Panipat, October 8
The Chief Minister’s flying squad has unearthed a racket of agents involved in preparing registration certificates (RCs), driving licences and permits at higher rates allegedly in connivance with officials of the Regional Transport Authority here.
The police have registered two separate cases and arrested two agents, Yajuvendera and Manoj Kumar Verma, who were running the racket. Produced in the court on Thursday, the duo was sent to three-day police remand.
The flying squad recovered stamps and registers of the RTA, 87 new RCs, 47 vehicular fitness certificates and a large number of licences and permits from the two agents.
SI Shishpal Singh said that following a tip-off, the police team in the presence of Duty Magistrate Anil Kaushik raided the two shops owned by Verma and Yajuvendra.
Manoj Kumar Yadav, ADC-cum-Secretary, RTA, said they were probing the matter. — TNS
