Man held for faking accident
Jammu, Apr 30: Police have arrested a man on the charges of faking an accident in Ramban district. A police spokesman said it arrested Karmvir Singh son of Kulbir Singh of Preet Nagar Digiana and recovered 95 quintals of TMT bars on his disclosure from Chatha area on the out skirts of Jammu city.
He said the accused on April 10, 2013 loaded 15 ton of TMT bars from Kashmir Rolling Steel Mill Bari Brahmana Jammu for Srinagar in a truck (No. 4827/JK-14B) and went to Chatha area, as he had already hatched a criminal conspiracy with another person Sandeep of Indra Nagar Miran Shaib to misappropriate the consignment and accordingly dumped about 100 quintals of TMT bars in Chatha area and remaining 50 quintals was kept in the truck. “The accused driver with the intention to push the truck into the river Chenab in Ramban area started his journey towards Srinagar on April 17. After he reached Ramban he looked for a suitable site to push the truck into river Chenab. He found suitable site near Seri land slide area from where he attempted to push the truck into river Chenab after jumping out of it,” the spokesman said. “But fortunately the truck stopped and its engine got switched off. The accused driver could not succeed in his design and he fled away from the spot.”
He said on April 18 police received information that one truck loaded with TMT bars is hanging on road side near Seri land slide area of Srinagar-Jammu highway.
“A team of Police Station Ramban reached the spot and after examining the site came to conclusion that the accident could be a fake one, and accordingly a case of cheating and criminal breaches of trust under FIR No. 57/2013 U/S 420/407/120-B RPC was registered and during the course of investigation the accused driver Karamvir Singh who happens to be the owner of the vehicle confessed the whole conspiracy of the cheating and fake accident,” he said. “On his disclosure Police team proceeded to Jammu and recovered 95 quintals of TMT bars from Chatha Jammu.” “The other accused Sandeep who is a notorious criminal is absconding. Further investigation of the case is on and efforts are being made to arrest the second accused,” the spokesman said.
