Raipur: A fatherdaughter duo from Tikrapara’s Chourasia Colony have reportedly duped a man of Rs 2.70 lakh on pretext of assisting him in securing a job at Delhi and doing interior designing of his house at Dhebar City in Bhatagaon.
According to police, complainant Sheikh Naushad Ahmed of B-10/4 in Bhatagaon’s Dhebar City came in contact with accused Amit Kumar Pathak and his daughter Preeti with regards to interior designing and designing furniture for his newly purchased house in Dhebar City.
Following a couple of visits to his house, the accused duo managed to impress upon the complainant of their mastery in interior designing as well as their clout in the administrative circle in Raipur and Delhi. The accused duo further managed to lure the complainant of helping him get a job in the Delhi’s Bharat Bhawan.
Under all these pretexts, they took Rs 2.70 lakh cash from and thereafter simply sat quite doing nothing in return. Failing to get the assured job in Delhi and with no interior designing done at his house despite repeated reminders, Sheikh Naushad lodged a complaint in Purani Basti police station against the accused duo following which police have registered an offence under Section 420, 34 IPC against them and is now investigating the matter further.
