A former Navy personnel has been arrested for allegedly preparing forged transport permit and issuing fake fitness certificate of commercial vehicles, police said on Saturday.
"Harvinder Khurana, 44, resident of Railway Road in Gurgaon, used to work as tout in Transport Authority in Gurgaon. He was also active in Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar and Punjabi Bagh Transport Centre. He was arrested from G T Road, Near Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar on August 30, on specific inputs," a senior police official said.
Several forged national permits, blank fitness certificates, 20 rubber stamps pertaining to Gurgaon Transport Authority, two computers, printer and scanner have been recovered from his possession.
During interrogation, Khurana said claimed to be an ex-navy man. After his retirement he had settled in Gurgaon. He saw his maternal uncle, who worked as a tout in Gurgaon Transport Authority, earning good amount of money and joined him. He worked with his maternal uncle for a few years, before starting to work independently.
Initially he used to help clients in obtaining licenses and getting vehicles transferred. Later he started working for commercial vehicles as commission was more.
He saw that by issuing forged national permit and fitness of commercial vehicles he can make money, so he started preparing fake permits or fitness on the demand of clients as it would cost much less than the genuine permit.
"He had been preparing forged permits and fitness certificates for last one year. During this period, he has issued or prepared over 100 national permits as well as fitness certificates of commercial vehicles," said Sanjay Kumar Jain, DCP Crime Branch said.
