A CNG pump employee has been booked for selling a CNG sticker for Rs 2,800 to the owner of a petrol-run car in East Delhi’s Vivek Vihar area. Police said a case under Section 409 (criminal breach of trust) of the IPC has been registered and a search is on to nab the accused.
The issue came to light when officials of Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) found some irregularities in the distribution of stickers at its Vivek Vihar CNG station. They conducted a sting operation and found the accused was selling stickers to petrol cars.
On Tuesday, they approached police and lodged a complaint against the employee.
DCP B S Gujjar said the accused has been identified as Deepak. The FIR was lodged on a complaint by Deputy Manager (marketing) IGL, Mukul Wadhwa, said Gujjar.
“The sting operation was conducted Monday. The employee was caught pasting the sticker on a petrol car and taking Rs 2,800 from the driver,” stated the complaint. “The complainant also suspects the involvement of other workers at the station and requested police to investigative the issue,” said an officer, adding that a few more employees have been detained.
The distribution of stickers was started after the Delhi government had announced that CNG vehicles would be exempted from its odd-even scheme. The stickers are free.
