Three people from Tamil Nadu have been charged with fraud by the Mankapur police for defrauding a saloon businessman in the city out of 52 lakh under the pretence of admitting his daughter to a medical college. M Vijay Kumar (46), Annu Samuel (41) and Jacob Thomas are the defendants in this case (54).
Cops said the complainant, Ompraksh Wandewar, a resident of Zingabai Takli, owns a saloon. His daughter was not getting admission in MBBS. Wandewar contacted some of his acquain- tances who told him that Samuel who hails from Vellore, can help his daughter in medical college. Samuel and his associates told Wandewar that 80 lakh will be needed for his daughter’s admission.
Since it was not too much money, his daughter appeared for the NEET exam again, but again scored less marks. Wandewar therefore, con- tacted Samuel.
He asked Wandewar to pay 50 lakh for the admis- sion in Christian Medical College, Vellore, Tamil Nadu. So, Wandewar went to Tamil Nadu and met him at the college. The accused took 1 lakh as registration fee, and then 51 lakh in instalments. They gave Wandewar a fake receipt. When they demanded more money, Wandewar inquired at the college and learned that the three had been arrested for fraud. He came back and filed a complaint with Mankapur police, who booked the trio for fraud.
