Gang preparing fake vehicle RCs busted in Shamshabad, 7 arrested

Hyderabad: The special operation team (SOT), Shamsabad zone, on Tuesday busted a gang preparing fake vehicle registration certificates (RCs) and Aadhar cards and arrested seven persons. The gang was also selling vehicles.

The police seized 1,200 fake vehicle registration certificates, 29 stamps, computers and printers, and other relevant documents from them.

The six accused have been identified as Chamana Sathish (32) and Kaligeedi Chandrashekar (44) from West Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh; Shaik Jhangeer Basha (50) and Syed Hussain (35) from Hyderabad; M. Ganesh (29) from East Godavari district in AP; Ch. Ramesh (36) from Vijayawada, AP; and Sampath from Bhadradri Kothagudem district.


Hussain and Sampath stole the original RC from different RTA offices and sold it to Basha for Rs. 200 per certificate who then sold it to Sathish for Rs. 300 per certificate. Sathish along with Ganesh prepared fake vehicle RCs and fake Aadhar cards using details of previous customers given to them by Shekar. They erased the details on the cards using nail polish remover and printed the new details provided by Shekar.

Sathish then sold the printed RC for Rs. 700-900 per certificate to Shekar. Meanwhile, Ramesh collected the RCs from Hussain and erased the data and re-printed the RC. Later, Shekar and Ramesh met with RTA agents Basha and Hussain, cheated the RTA officials, and got the new RCs.

In the wake of such crimes happening in the city, the Cyberabad commissioner of police has requested the public to stop purchasing vehicles without original RCs. If they do buy such vehicles then they should immediately change the ownership particulars and not approach agents for RCs and licenses.
