The City of London Police are investigating the registration of three vehicles under the name of former premier Nawaz Sharif by unknown men with criminal intent, reported the 24NewsHD TV channel.
According to a report published by PML-N media group, the investigation was initiated after Nawaz Sharif’s London office reported the fraudulent registration to the police and the Driver and Vehicles Licensing Agency (DVLA).
The vehicles were registered in March and April 2023.
Nawaz's office alerted the City of London Police and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) when it received a letter at Avenfield flats sent by the DVLA that a vehicle number BF06NWC had been registered in the name of “Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif”.
Another vehicle with registration number MM07MUB was registered in April and this was also reported to the DVLA and the police. The DVLA communicated to the Nawaz office on April 6 and on April 11 a penalty charge notice was sent in the name of Nawaz Sharif at Avenfield flats by the Transport for London (TfL) against the third vehicle registered as LY63XDL.
The head of Action Fraud at the City of London Police said that it had received NFRC230305856682 on March 30 and NFRC230405863595 on April 3.
PML-N worker Khurram Butt, who dealt with police-related matters, reported to the police that the vehicles were being used for acts of terrorism, fraud, and criminality.
He informed the police that there is someone trying to use vehicles for criminal purposes, including terrorism and fraud, and that they should be apprehended. He suspected that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf supporters are behind the fraud. The police are investigating the complaints and are trying to identify the person or persons involved.
An enforcement officer of DVLA informed Nawaz’s office that it would investigate the matter.
It added: “They have been recorded on our system as information reports. An information report can be made when fraud has not been committed but has been attempted, or there is suspicion of criminal intent. An information report is also made if somebody is reporting fraud on behalf of a victim or a person is the victim of identity theft.”
