THANE: The Thane po­lice on Thurs­day ar­rested a truck driver who filed a po­lice com­plaint say­ing he had been robbed of steel rods worth Rs16 lakh. The po­lice found he had staged the rob­bery.

The po­lice ar­rested his helper and six men. The truck driver was iden­ti­fied as Ram­dayal Choudhary, and his helper as Mo­ham­mad Rafik. On Jan­uary 1, a man named Devram Bish­noi hired Choudhary’s truck, ask­ing him to col­lect steel rods from a Bhi­wandi godown and to shift them to Kalam­boli. On Jan­uary 2, Choudhary filed a com­plaint that the steel rods were robbed. He said their truck was stopped by four or five men. They tied the driver and his helper and left with the truck.

“When we in­ter­ro­gated the driver and the helper sep­a­rately, the truth came out. They had kept all the ma­te­rial at a godown near Taloja vil­lage. They were helped by six other men,” said a po­lice of­fi­cer.
