Electronics trader duped of Rs 1.04 lakh

Nagpur: A conman and his accomplices “played a fraud game” with an electronics trader and cheated him to the tune of Rs 1.04 lakh by issuing cheques that reportedly bounced.

The complainant Kunal Vijay Magbhendkar (26), resident of Telipura near Pakodewala Hotel, Sitabuldi, told police that the accused Vinod Bhagwandas Kalyani, resident of House No. 133, Old Bhandara Road, near Rajesh Jewellers, phoned him on April 25, 2017, when her was sitting in his electronics shop. The accused Vinod asked Kunal whether playstation game is available in his shop. Kunal told Vinod the playstation game is available at a price of Rs 9,500. Subsequently, the accused Vinod sent his driver with a cheque of Rs 9,500 of Axis Bank’s Lakadganj Branch and took away the playstation. But since Kunal was unwell he did not drop the cheque in the bank for encashment. After a few days, the accused Vinod again phoned Kunal and purchased an LCD TV, playstation game and a China-made TV collectively worth Rs 1.04 lakh and issued cheques of the amount from time to time. But the cheques reportedly bounced and thus Kunal was cheated to the tune of Rs 1.04 lakh.

Sitabuldi PSI M Wankhede has booked the accused Vinod Kalyani and others under Sections 420, 406, 34 of the IPC and probing the matter further.
