Man nabbed for duping Rs 63 lakh from a Delhi based garment manufacturer
New Delhi, Sep 10 (KNN) Delhi police’s Cyber Cell has nabbed a person in connection with a case of cheating in the national capital.
Pankaj Khanna (44), a resident of Burari in Delhi was arrested by the Delhi police on Sunday for cheating a garment manufacturer to the tune of Rs 63 lakh.
According to a media report, few days back, a representative of a fabric company known as Spectre Exim Private Limited, Khanna lodged a complaint at Mehrauli police station that his company was duped Rs 63 lakh by a person who pretended as client from a company called William Inc.
"It was sometime during the month of May 2018 that a firm named William Inc having its office at Saidulajab in Saket had made a contract with our company for the supply of fabric worth Rs 90 lakh," Khanna said.
"The company - Spectre Exim - had supplied goods as per contract and William Inc also paid approximately Rs 27 lakh for the said deal through RTGS while the rest of the payment remained to be paid. We continued to ask for the remaining payment from William Inc against the supply of goods as per contract but the other party kept on delaying the same," he added.
During the investigation, it was revealed that the company William Inc, registered under Khanna's name, vacated its office and the promoters also vanished without any trace.
However, acting on Khanna’s complain, Police has registered a case under Sections 420 and 406 of Indian Penal Code (IPC). It also disclosed that the culprit has been using this modus operandi in other cases as well.
"A part of the payment through cash or RTGS would also be made upfront so as to make their credentials strong as a genuine party, while the rest of the payment would be promised with post-dated cheques for getting goods from traders. They would then leave the place with goods that were ready for delivery," the cyber cell added.
