Thrissur: Two cars with the same registration number spotted at a parking lot of a hotel at Kokkala, near here, prompted the cops to commence a probe asap. The cars of different brands and make were found to be bearing the same registration number (KL 63 B 9900). The primary assumption is that one of the vehicles was having a fake number plate and documents.
The Thrissur City (East) police impounded both the vehicles and took a person into custody in connection with the incident.
The Honda City and the Hyundai i10 carrying the same number were spotted at the hotel’s parking area around 2.30 pm on Monday. Upon being alerted by local people, the police reached the spot and verified the registration certificates (RC) of both the cars with the Motor Vehicles Departments. The documents produced by the owner of the Honda City, which was registered with the Joint RTO office in Angamaly on August 18, 2014, were found to be genuine.
The police, suspecting that the fake registration number was being used to indulge in illegal activities, have launched a thorough probe into the matter.
It is suspected the car bearing the fake number was registered in Puducherry. Though the cops searched both the vehicles, nothing suspicious was found.
