Nagpur: Sadar Police have arrested a man who allegedly committed fraud by selling two cars for Rs 16 lakhs using fake documents. The owner of a Xerox center who prepared the fake documents has also been arrested.
According to police reports, Aman Dhariwal (27), a resident of Chowni and owner of Dhariwal Jewellers in Sadar, made a deal to purchase a Maruti car for 8 lakhs from Mohit Gupta (24) whom he was introduced to by Mamta Gupta, a person he had known for several years. Mohit delivered the car and its documents to Dhariwal, who paid him 7 lakh in cash and 1 lakh online.
However, it was discovered that Mohit had already sold a car to Pratik Kale for 9.40 lakh using a fake RC book. Kale filed a complaint with the police, leading to the confiscation of the original documents of the car.

Mohit sold two cars for a total of 16 lakhs using fake documents and cheated Dhariwal. The police arrested Mohit and the owner of the Xerox center who prepared the fake documents.
