Indore: After confession of fake mark-sheet case accused about involvement of three persons—a clerk, an official and ARTO in the case—the city police on Saturday dashed off a letter to the Regional Transport Officer to know about the process of issuing heavy vehicle licence. Police want to know the process of getting heavy vehicle (HV) licence and the documents required for it so that they can bust the nexus of RTO staff and agents.
“We have sent a letter to the RTO to know more about the process of issuing heavy licences. We have got some clues about involvement of employees of the RTO in the fake mark sheet case but the investigation is still on,” said Additional Superintendent of Police (East) Prashant Choubey. Meanwhile, the police arrested six RTO agents in the case, including two prime accused Hemant Sharma and Bhola and are investigating the role of more than 22 agents, who were in contact with the accused. The police team reached the RTO office in search of documents and other agents as the accused named RP Gautam, a clerk in RTO, as their patron, who was suspended by the Transport Commissioner and sent to Gwalior.
“We have not registered a case against anyone and it will be done only after investigation,” the ASP added. Meanwhile, senior officials in the RTO have been trying to save Gautam with the excuse that he never worked in heavy licences department. They are also planning to send same report to the police even after knowing the fact that most of the agents and impersonators (Avaji) works in the RTO under Gautam’s patronage.
