PANCHKULA: Haryana cops have spotted several wrongdoings in the record of the high-end lavish convoy of Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, giving clue at a duty fudging scam in their trade in. The deluxe vehicles involve price tag of more than Rs 1 crore.
Gurmeet’s fleet boasts eight lavish Lexus Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) which comes into Panchkula on August 25 during his arrest day.
Ram Rahim was going in this group of vehicles much ahead of the deluxe cars were sell in India. On March 24 this year, Toyota’s luxury car brand only reached to the Indian market along with its three models involving RX450h, ES300h, LX450d/LX570. As per the reports, the Union government took 120% of the cars’ expenditure for selling car through CBU.
The investigation has been started by the cops and CBI to dig out the facts about the matter. Authorities of the intelligence wing noticed that not only did facts of registration numbers of vehicles didn’t go with the records. Also, the engine numbers of the apprehended SUVs also revealed that vehicles were rolled at five areas, especially in Haryana.
Believing a major swindle in the auction, buy of luxury cars, Haryana police has enforced a Special Investigation team (SIT) in Sirsa to investigate the matter.
As per the documents, few vehicles are recorded in the forename of the dera while other vehicles are registered in the forename of Shah Satnam Force.
The Special Investigation Team chief will interrogate dera chairperson Vipashsna Insan about the cars.
As per the reports, The dera chief involves 50 cars among which 30 cars are Toyota Fortuner, Innova and a Porsche
“We are quite clear about the Lexus cars. These were either brought after paying heavy import duty or smuggled from Nepal. This hints at a major scam. The bullet-proofing of one such vehicle is also a serious concern,” a senior officer affirmed.
