|Police arrested Balaji, alias Shashanth,
for posing as a grandson of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi
and cheating three persons with promises of swanky cars auctioned
at a cheap price by the State Government. The accused had committed
several con jobs in Bangalore earlier, it has been found.
Several cars, including a Ford Fiesta, a Maruti Swift, a Toyota Innova and a Skoda, along with a pocket bike and gold valuables worth Rs. 3 lakh have been seized by the Koramangala police in Bangalore.
Sukhas Reddy, the accused, was a resident of Banaswadi in Bangalore, Koramangala police inspector G Nagaraj said.
Inspector Karthik said, “The modus operandi of the accused was to surf the internet and get information on government tenders. Then he would call companies pretending to be a representative of the department concerned and strike a deal. He would promise to buy products from the companies and ask for a 10% cut to be deposited in his account in advance. Once the money is paid he would change his mobile number immediately and disappear”.
Sukhas Reddy was exposed after an apartment owner on Old Madras Road lodged a complaint.
