FIR lodged against Volkswagen MD
New Delhi: A court here has directed Delhi police to lodge an FIR on a complaint against a top executive of Germany-based Volkswagen, directors of its authorised car dealer and a official of transport department on the issue of illegal charges levied on buyers.
Metropolitan Magistrate Rajinder Singh passed the orders for lodging FIR on a plea alleging that car dealers were levying charges like those for 'handling' in violation of law.
The complainant said that Central Motor Vehicle Rules and an August 2007 notification of Transport Department Delhi prohibits motor vehicle dealers from levying such charges.
"Looking at the scale and gravity of the allegation, it is deemed fit to direct the SHO concerned to register an FIR and investigate this matter. Accordingly, the SHO concerned is directed to register an FIR in accordance with law under the relevant sections," the judge said.
