Three persons have been arrested in Maharashtra's Thane district for allegedly cheating private car owners after hiring the vehicles with a promise of good returns. Acting on some complaints, the police launched a probe and found that the accused used to lure people by taking their cars on rent to be used as tourist vehicles. In return, the accused promised good financial returns to the car owners. However, when the car owners neither got the money nor their vehicle, they realised that they were cheated and approached the police. The modus operandi of the accused was to sell these cars and run away with the money.
