Husband-wife duo dupes many women on pretext of nursing training

Over 150 aspiring women of city were deceived by a husband-wife duo to the tune of lakhs of rupees in the name of providing them admissions and nursing training at a Bengaluru-based institute.

One of the victims, Deeksha Iwnate (21), a resident of Borkhedi Railway, Butibori, in her complaint to police said that the accused duo Sarita Kumbhare and Navin Kumbhare, both residents of Kanfade Nagar, Urmila Colony, took Rs 10,000 each from her and over 150 other women on the pretext of providing them admissions for nursing training at Bengaluru-based Institute of Nursing. Deeksha and other women were told by the accused duo that they will have to pay no more money for the nursing training. However, Rs 80,000 more were demanded from each woman if they have to appear for examinations after admissions. Deeksha and other women were taken aback over the extra Rs 80,000 demand.

Dhantoli police, on the basis of Deeksha’s complaint, have booked the accused Sarita Kumbhare and Navin Kumbhare under relevant Sections of IPC and investigating the matter further.
