The Indian Scout motorcycle shop in the Indian National Capital Territory has seen its stock of Indian Scout motorcycles decrease dramatically since the death of the owner.
The owner of the shop, who has not been identified, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and murder-for-hire.
On February 14, the owner of Indian Scouts motorcycle shop, Harish K. Shinde, was arrested in the presence of his son in New Delhi.
He was allegedly found to be in possession of a number of illegal motorcycles, including a Bora Bora, which was found in his possession.
After an investigation, a team from the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) raided the shop on February 18 and seized several illegal motorcycles including two Bora bikes and a Triumph Triumph Sportster.
Harish was also arrested for possession of stolen goods.
According to the ACB, Harished had been living in New York City since 2016.
In 2016, Harishes son, Pankaj, was also found to have been selling illegal motorcycles in the United States.
According to Indian Scout, the shop had lost its motorcycle licence in August this year and had to shut down operations.
“Since the motorcycle shop is closed, the owners have been receiving death threats,” Harish’s son Pankaja said.
“I have contacted the police to take care of my father’s family, who are still in the U.S. after the death threats.
I am in no mood to let this happen to him.”
Indian Scout’s director of public relations, Suresh Kumar, said the shop would continue to operate, but was no longer allowed to sell motorcycles in India.
“We are working on setting up a motorcycle factory in India,” he said.
