In a bizarre incident, a man who was arrested earlier for allegedly stealing a truck, has left the city police red-faced by driving off the same stolen truck, which was parked outside Lakadganj police station for legal formalities.
The accused identified as Sanjay Dhone (50) was arrested by the cops on October 10 and has 35 cases registered against him mostly for theft of trucks. Dhone, who was released on bail by the court, fled with truck.
According to a report in TOI, police informed that, Dhone had stolen the truck from the small factory area on Old Bhandara road in the beginning of October. The truck had iron consignment worth Rs 14 lakh. Dhone was heading towards Dhule when the crime branch intercepted him near Morshi in Amravati on October 11.
As per reports, Dhone was upset with the cops for having seized his cell phone despite his repeated requests to give him back. A furious Dhone then made his way to Sitabuldi police station to file a complaint but was turned away. To take revenge, Dhone then vowed to steal the same truck for which he had been arrested earlier.
An official at Lakadganj police station informed that before fleeing with the truck, an angry Dhone mistreated a guard deployed by the vehicles owner to guard it.
Charges of robbery have been pressed against Dhone and a case has been registered at the Lakadganj police station. Police around the city have been alerted and have also been put on patrol to nab him.
