Gamharia, June 27: Hundreds of vehicle owners and transporters staged a demonstration near Usha More in Gamharia to protest against alleged cheating by two local online cyber cafes. The agitating transporters said Manish Café and Jai Mata Di Café of Gamharia had duped 1590 transporters by robbing them of Rs 88 lakh. They said the transporters had been depositing money with the two cafes to pay road tax online for the last two years. But from April 2021 onwards, the transporters were shocked to know that their road tax arrears had not been cleared. When the transporters showed deposit slips to the transport authorities, they were informed that the official transport department website had been hacked from April 2021 onwards, as a result of which their road tax had not been deposited, said the transporters.
