The Navi Mumbai police present in Maharashtra, on Friday registered a case against the owner of a company for allegedly duping 11 car owners of a huge amount attributing to nearly ₹ 62 lakh. He took their vehicles with the promise of “attractive” monthly rent, an official said on Friday.
The accused Satyaprakash Varma, claims to run a financial services company. He allegedly cheated the car owners between the time period of April and August this year, the police official added. Varma allegedly did not only fail to pay for the cumulative rent of ₹ 10.97 lakh of his customers, but he also did not return his customers’ cars which were worth ₹ 51 lakh to the respective owners, the official stated. When the car owners did not get their money and cars back over a period of these following months, they decided to finally lodge a complaint against the accused.
Therefore, it was after the complaints that the Rabale MIDC police on Friday registered a cheating case against Varma, the official said, adding that no arrest has been made until now.
