New Delhi, Dec 12, 2021- A man, who was in an inebriated state, forgot the location after parking his car and filed a police complaint of carjacking near here in Noida, an official said on Sunday.
According to the official, the man identified as Ashish, lodged a complaint with the Phase 3 police station, stating that two motorcycle borne unidentified miscreants on Saturday forcibly took away his I-20 car from Sector 71, Noida. “As soon as we got the information, a police team was deployed to gather all details about the incident,” the official said.
In a bid to trace the location of carjackers, the cops went through the CCTV footage of the area where crime took place. To their surprise, they were not able to see any such crime which raised suspicion about the authenticity of the complaint.
As they continued the probe, it was found that complainant Ashish had filed a fake complaint of carjacking as he was in intoxicated that time. The probe further revealed that Ashish had parked his car at Noida e-cycle docking stand in Sector 120 and from there he went to his residence by an auto-rickshaw. Later, as the truth spilled out, complainant Ashish acknowledged his mistake and apologised to the police. He was then handed over his vehicle after completion of all official formalities. (Agency)
