The brother of a BJP MLA from Kalyan was yesterday allegedly cheated at a petrol pump in the area, when the attendant didn't fill the quantity he had paid for. A case has been registered at the Bazarpeth police station. According to the police, the incident took place at Hind petrol pump on Agra Road in Kalyan West. The victim, Deepak Pawar, brother of MLA Narendra Pawar, had stopped by at the pump and asked for petrol worth Rs 200 in his two-wheeler.

"The Activa has a small tank, so, petrol for Rs 200 should have filled it up. But, when I checked, it showed only half full. When I questioned the attendant about it, he started arguing with me," said Deepak.
His brother's supporters, on coming to know about it, reached the petrol pump and created a ruckus. They caught the manager, Santosh Singh, and took him to Bazarpeth police station, where he was questioned and released. The case has been filed against one Pankaj Sharma and a hunt has been launched for him.
A few months ago too, a case had been registered against the staff of the same petrol pump for cheating a customer in a similar manner.
Assistant Police Inspector Vishaka Jhende confirmed that a case under section 420 (cheating) of the IPC had been registered. "Further investigation is on," he said.
