Nagpur: A con man hailing from Uttar Pradesh cheated a city-based trader to the tune of Rs 2.50 crore on the pretext of giving him commission share.
A resident of Flat No. 201/204, Swami Narayan Enclave, Sadashiv Nagar, Wathoda, Rakesh Laxminarayan Agrawal (56) runs two firms – Jaibhavani Trading at Lakadganj and Janhavi Agro Industries in Anaj Bazaar, Itwari. The accused Awadesh Harichandra Jaiswal (45), native of B5/82, B7/97, Awadh Garvi Sonarpura, Varanasi (UP) won the trust of Rakesh with his glib talking. The accused lured Rakesh with 3 percent commission in trading. Later, the accused ordered various goods from different states through Rakesh and also asked him to make the payment of Rs 2.50 crore. The accused initially kept the ordered goods at the farm of Rakesh and later took possession. However, even after six months, the accused Awadesh Jaiswal did not pay Rs 2.50 crore to Rakesh and thus duped him.
Lakadganj PSI S Dongre, based on the complaint of Rakesh Agrawal, booked the accused Awadesh Jaiswal under Sections 406, 420 of the IPC. Further probe is underway.
