Nagpur: In a curious incident, a cheated man detained the fraudster, tied his hands and legs and robbed him of gold chain to recover his money.
A resident of Plot No. 97, Zingabai Takli, Shrikrishna Nagar, Godhni Road, Vijay Dnaneshwar Raut (40) had taken Rs 30,000 from accused Bunty alias Shivaji Laxman Mahajan (45), resident of Faras Square, Mahajan Bhavan, Koradi, on the pretext of reducing his (Bunty’s) property tax. However, Vijay Raut neither reduced the tax nor returned Bunty’s money.
