The Cyberabad police have cracked a case of a woman who has been duped 85 Lakh rupees with a promise of setting up a business at Gandipet. The prime accused in this case is the husband of anchor Syamala and a social worker from Moula Ali.
As stated by the complainant, one of the prime accused told the latter in 2017 about 4 acres of land in Gandipet under his possession which was well over 100 crores. The complainant signed an agreement with the con men and agreed to invest one crore in their venture. She paid this amount via cheque and cash. The agreement was in 2017.
Since then, the lady had constantly followed up with these two accused and noticed no further developments beyond the deal and amount transfer had occurred. The complainant waited for a particular time, after which she asked for her money to be returned as she did not see any signs of the deal prospering. In doing so, she was threatened by the accused of consequences and also tried to extort an additional amount of 50,000/- by blackmailing her. The accused are under judicial custody, and criminal proceedings will follow soon.
