Rajkot police intercepted a pickup truck and seized 300 sets of China made LED televisions, loaded on it after its driver could not produce any bill for them late on Tuesday evening. Acting on a tip off that a truck carrying 300 LED TV sets without any documents would pass by, a team of Bhaktinagar police maintained a watch at Ahir Chowk near Kotharia road.
At 8:15 pm, the police stopped a white Maxi truck loaded with boxes. On inspection, police found that the truck was carrying 300 LED TV sets manufactured in China.
As the pickup driver Chhotan Sheikh and his companion Sanjay Parmar could not produce bills of purchase of the TV sets, police detained the vehicle and seized the goods under Section 41 (1) (d) of the Code of Criminal Procedure further investigation. Police said both Sheikh and Parmar were residents of Rajkot city.

“Sheikh is just the driver of the pickup truck. The TV sets were purchased by Parmar from one Zakirbhai in Bapunagar area of Ahmedabad city. Parmar says that he was to supply these TV sets to those running lottery schemes in Junagadh and other districts of Saurashtra. He claims to have bills of purchase for these sets but has not produced before us. We suspect, these sets could have been smuggled into India,” said Mulubha Dhadhal, Bhaktinagar police sub-inspector who was leading the team that intercepted the consignment.
Police said each TV set was priced Rs 2,200. Police have seized the 300 sets worth Rs 6.6o lakh and the pickup truck worth Rs 4 lakh. Further enquiry is on in the matter.
