THE OWNER of a transport company, truck driver and others, have sold off around 45 tonnes of iron rods that had been sent for Jaora. The lost iron rods are worth around Rs 7 lakhs. Tukoganj police have registered a case against five persons in this connection.
According to police, Darshan, son of Pratap Mehta and resident of Park Road, purchased 45.260 tonnes of iron rods from a factory in Raipur and booked the consignment to be sent to Jaora by Khan Transport.
Truck driver Harish carrying the consignment in the truck (MP-09-KD-2524) never reached the destination. When Mehta asked the owner of the transport company, the owner said that probably the consignment had been looted midway and did not reach the destination.

Police have registered complaint against the transport company owner Khan, truck driver Harish, Muzaffar Hussain, Mohammad Nayeem and Jitendra, all residents of Ujjain.
