Two staff members at the Renault-Nissan factory in Chennai recently stole two brand new Duster SUVs. The two workers even went on to sell one of them for just Rs 6 lakh.
The two workers managed to pass through the factory's security system using fake number plates, two older vehicles and a forged gate pass.
The two workers; P Marimuthu (28 years) of Kundrathur and M Arun Kumar (27 years) of Tondiarpet had been working at the factory for over seven years now. Both of them have now been arrested by the state police department.
According to TOI, the company discovered two brand new vehicles missing from the manufacturing line on January 22. The two cars had been in the company yard from the 7th of January, awaiting dispatch to the Renault showrooms.
The investigating officerstated that the two workers forged fake gate passes to move the car from the company's yard to the visitor vehicle parking lot. The two workers, also knew that the security would check just the number plates and not the car itself.
This allowed them to enter the parking lot with two worn-out vehicles, fix the fake number plates on the new SUVs and drive away. The pair even sold off the SUVs at just Rs 6 lakh and were in search of a buyer for the second Duster.
Reports also stated that the job profile of both the staff members was to test the new cars for any manufacturing defects. This allowed them access to brand new vehicles straight of the production line.
Both the two stolen Renault Duster SUVs; one brown and one silver, have now been seized by the Tamil Nadu police. Both the cars at the time of being seizedwore fake registration plates: TN 10 AJ 9283 and TN 01 AV 2244.
