Yarn Businessman Cooks Up 55 Lakh Loot Story | Surat

SURAT: Investigation into Tuesday night’s Rs 55 lakh loot from a yarn businessman in Dindoli has revealed that it’s a concocted story cooked up by the complainant himself.
While the police are yet to declare the exact details of their investigation, sources said that the 31-year-old textile trader had hatched the plan himself which he executed with the help of his aides. “It seems Kanodia is in some financial trouble and tried to find a easy way out through the loot story. He, however, could not give satisfactory reasons as to how he had arranged for the Rs 55 lakh,” a police officer told TOI.
The police now suspect if Kanodia actually had Rs 55 lakh or if he is simply misleading. “It is doubtful if he had that much money,” said the police who are now working to find out the exact reason why Kanodia planned the bogus loot.
In his complaint, Ankit Kanodia had alleged that four unidentified accused with covered faces riding on two mopeds accosted him and his uncle Vinod while the duo was travelling in his SUV on the Kadodara canal road. He claimed that the accused flung a bag of mud on his SUV’s windshield, which left him blindsided and forced to stop the vehicle.
Soon, Kanodia told the police, one of the goons then opened the door on the driver’s side and removed the SUV’s keys. The goon also sprayed some chemical on them making Kanodia lose conscious, even as another accused looted the bag of cash from Vinod.
Kanodia, a resident of Vesu, told the police that he was taking the cash to make payment for a property deal of a textile unit that he had purchased in partnership basis.
However, the yarn trader’s lie fell through during questioning by the local police, while the crime branch unearthed the whole truth.
The alleged loot took place at a spot that has no CCTV coverage. However, the police have gathered CCTV footage of various locations of the connecting roads and are now verifying how long the robbers had been tailing Kanodia’s SUV.
