Nagpur: MIDC Police on Tuesday booked two persons for allegedly defrauding a Vivo mobile phone dealer to the tune of Rs 10.42 lakh.
The accused have been identified as Vishal Chaudhary, a resident of MIDC and Ashish Gaurkhede, a resident of Wadi. Chaudhary was working as a phone delivery-cum-collection agent at Satnam Enterprises. Gaurkhede owns a shop in the Wadi area.
Praveen Shyamsunder Mundada (41), a resident of Plot No 114, Lokmanya Nagar, who owns Trupti Enterprises at Shop No 5, Sondawale Complex, Balaji Nagar, lodged a complaint that Chaudhary gained his confidence and took 80 handsets of Vivo company worth Rs 10.42 lakh from him in May this year.
