Armed with the forged sale agreement, the three accused approached Central Bank of India, Gittikhadan Branch and procured a loan of Rs 12 lakh. Moreover, the three fraudsters also broke open lock of the flat and took possession of the property forcibly. This way the three accused duped the flat owner as well as the bank. Gittikhadan cops have booked the three offenders under relevant sections of IPC and probing the matter further.

In yet another cyber crime, two unidentified tricksters relieved a 42-year old man Deepak Jivanlal Mojwani of Satranjipura, Itwari, by pilfering Rs 98,000 from his account in HDFC Bank, Kingsway Branch, through netbanking. Sitabuldi police have registered a case under IPC and IT Act sections and searching for the two accused.

The father-son duo promised Santosh and his friend jobs in Government-owned Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL).
