Wholesale trader duped of Rs 15 lakh by couple from MP

Nagpur: A city-based wholesale foodgrain trader was duped to the tune of Rs 15 lakh by two rice mill owners hailing from Madhya Pradesh. The two accused are husband-wife duo.

A resident of Plot No. 19/20, Chhapru Nagar Colony, Lakadganj, Rajesh Asanand Madrani (58), owns a trading firm named Rajesh Trading Company dealing in wholesale foodgrains. The trading company is situated at Building No. 7 in Kalamna Market as well as in Umred, Mohadi, Tumsar, Bhandara, Seoni (MP). The accused duo – Darshankumar Mulchand Chordiya and Pratibha Darshankumar Chordiya, both residents of Ward No. 6, Chordiya Galli, Warashioni (MP) – runs a rice mill at Warashioni, Mohadi and Tumsar.

The accused husband-wife duo used to purchase rice from Rajesh Madrani regularly from 2011 to 2019 and paid the money later.
