Woman dupes Bhosle family kin of Rs 3.76 lakh
In one of the most common financial frauds, a woman cheated a member of Bhosle family here of Rs 3.76 lakh after forging a cheque she received from the latter. She has been absconding since then. Lakadganj police have registered the case of fraud against her on complaint of Laxman Singh Bhosle. However the cops were still clueless about her whereabouts.
Police sources informed that the accused Sheetal Gyanesh Goyal went to Bhosle’s automobile showroom M/s Muscat Motors on February 11. Sheetal booked a two wheeler there, only to cancel the booking the very next day. She cited some family problems behind her move. After completing paper formalities, Bhosle gave her a cheque of Rs 1000 which she deposited as the booking amount.
Sources said that Sheetal allegedly tampered with the cheque as she changed her name from Sheetal D. Goyal to Sheetal D. Gohail and tampered with the figures too. She changed the amount to Rs 3.76 lakh and got it clear from Ajni branch of Abhyudaya Bank.
No sooner Bhosle realized that he was cheated than he rushed at Lakadganj police station and narrated the incident. Police have launched the lookout for Sheetal, however she still appeared to be beyond police reach.
