Mysuru, June 28:- Two miscreants have cheated a scrap merchant from Madhurai to the tune of Rs 10.5 lakh.
Sahul Ahmed of Madhurai has been taken for a ride by Asgar of Bengaluru and Aslam Basha of Tumkur. They introduced themselves to Sahul Ahmed, saying they have scrap items for sale and showed transformers belonging to someone else near Shabana Shadi Mahal at Rajiv Nagar. They took an advance of Rs 1.5 lakh and told Sahul to pay the remaining amount while taking the transformers. When he came along with a lorry to take the transformers, they asked him to transfer the remaining Rs 9 lakh and Sahul followed their orders promptly. Later, he got to know that the transformers belonged to someone else and could do nothing. The Madurai man has filed a complaint against Asgar and Basha at Udayagiri police station. (MR/KS).
