Mumbai – Indradev Pandey
Even after week of booking Matunga based businesswoman on the charge of cheating for using fake numberplate copied from business tycoon Ratan Tata’s car, the police have failed to question or arrest her about the deception.
According to the complaint filed by the traffic police officials they had recieved a complaint from the Cheif minister’s office after Ratan Tata approached them stating that he had recieved two e-challans for traffic violations that he had not committed.
On investigating the traffic police found out that the car using the duplicate number plate belonged to Narendra Forwarders Pvt Ltd company’s owner identified as Gitanjalli Shah. Shah had three e-challans on the number she had been using. The alleged deception by Shah came to light when the Mumbai traffic police began recovery of pending e-challans and contacting the defaulters, they found out that a Matunga based businessman had been using duplicate number plate of Ratan Tata’s car.
When the traffic police officers contacted Shah she said that she had replaced two numbers in the numberplate to match her lucky number after which the traffic police approached the Matunga police.
However the Matunga police have not yet been able to establish contact with Shah, “I have not even spoken to Shah yet,” said Vijaysingh Ghatge, Senior police inspector of Matunga police station.
When asked why the procedure taking so long, Ghatge said that they would call Shah soon for questioning.
Vijay Patil, Deputy commissioner of police zone 4 said that he was not aware of the progress of the case but added that the Matunga police should have sent a notice to Shah to appear for questioning by now. “I will find out what is causing delay in the procedure,” added Patil.
