Anadolu Agency article New Delhi, Nov. 25 — Scooter has been in the news again with its latest scam.
Scooter Motors has claimed that the owner of a scooter that was stolen in the national capital is not the owner.
The company said on Sunday that the person in question is a driver and not a mechanic.
The company said that the vehicle was stolen on November 15 and it has not received any compensation.
It also said that no refund has been issued to the person.
Scooter Motors, the largest scooter brand in the country, said in a statement that the scooter was stolen from the road in the vicinity of Kolkata on November 20.
The scooter has since been returned to its owner.
Scooters have a reputation for theft, so the company said.
Scooters, like other luxury brands, face an increased threat from criminals who are using cameras to track down vehicles.
Sculptures, jewellery and cars with fake license plates are among the vehicles that are being targeted by thieves.
The number of vehicles with fake licenses has risen in recent years, according to a report by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB).
The National Crime Intelligence Bureau has warned against the use of cameras to spy on cars.
Scooty Motors, owned by Tata Motors India, was last year named as one of the top 50 biggest scooter companies by the Indian luxury industry.
