One more arrested in petrol pilferage case

Press Trust of India  |  Thane 

The police in has arrested another person in connection with the petrol pilferage racket that came to light last month.

Prakash Nulkar, who once worked at a company which made the fuel dispensing machines installed at petrol pumps, was arrested from Hubli in yesterday, police said.

Earlier, police had arrested 23 persons including two pump owners in the case after raiding over 90 petrol pumps across

The accused replaced the IC (integrated circuit) chips installed in the dispensing machines. The new chip ensured that the quantity of petrol dispensed would be a little less than what the display panel on the machine showed.

police commissioner Parambir Singh told reporters today that the city crime branch sleuths arrested Nulkar from Hubli. The investigators got a lot of information about the modus operandi from him, Singh said.

Further probe is on.
