Court orders inquiry against Sona Tradeways
Srinagar, Feb 5: A court here today ordered inquiry into a complaint against a Srinagar-based gas agency, Sona Tradeways.
An LPG consumer, Hilal Ahmad Bhat filed a complaint against the gas agency before CJM Srinagar alleging that the dealer was taking consumers for a ride by issuing “forged consumer cards” and “arbitrarily charging on new LPG connections.”
The complaint was listed today before the court of Forest Magistrate. The court observed: “. . . it appears that the allegations against the accused persons are serious in nature and before taking cognizance an inquiry is to be conducted to ascertain the truthfulness or falsehood of the complaint.”
The court ordered: “Accordingly an inquiry U/S 202/CRPC is entrusted upon SDPO Shaheed Gunj, with the direction that he shall inquire into the matter and submit compliance report to the court.”
The complainant, a resident of Ibrahim Colony, had filed the complaint before the Chief Judicial Magistrate against Veena Dhar, Proprietor, Sona Tradeways and Nazir Ahmad Mir, manager of the agency. The complaint was transferred to Forest Magistrate.
Bhat pleads in the complaint that the “gas dealer is playing fraud with the general public at large and is preparing forged documents to facilitate blue-eyed in getting consumer cards on fake documents.”
“Customer namely Ajaz Ahmad Dar, having consumer no. 573797, according to the documents of the gas agency is registered with Election Commission Identity card no: GWR0936971. But investigation carried out by the complainant reveals that I-card is in the name of some other person,” the complaint reads.
“Further the agency has verified another consumer no. 567822 on Election I.D card GWR0919146 , whereas the voter I.D card GWR0919146 does not at all exist in the electoral rolls ,” it reads.
Bhat has also filed complaint before SHO, Police station, Karan Nagar alleging that a “close relative of manager, Sona Tradeways is selling affidavits of Rs 10 for Rs 80 without any authority and is preparing forged documents.” The FIR has been registered under no. 10/2013.
The complainant has also filed a complaint in Srinagar Municipal Corporation against the gas agency alleging that Sona Tradeways was dumping LPG cylinders in a building adjacent to Primary School where children are studying. He has also annexed photographic evidence with the complaint.
