NRI cheating case: Amberpet Inspector Sudhakar denies involvement
He is also accused of cheating an NRI of Rs 45 lakhs in connivance with another accused Rajesh
HYDERABAD: Tainted Amberpet Circle-Inspector Sudhakar said that he was unaware of the source of money, which a man by the name Rajesh used to purchase his house. The Inspector was charged with fraud in a case registered by the Vanasthalipuram police on Saturday night. He is also accused of cheating an NRI of Rs 45 lakhs in connivance with another accused Rajesh.
Reacting to the case registered against him, Sudhakar on Sunday came up with his version. “I bought a house in LB Nagar in 2019 and wanted to sell it in 2022. Rajesh purchased the house and it was legally transferred to his wife’s name. He paid the remaining Rs 45 lakhs towards the house loan directly to the bank. Why would I ask where the money came from? I wanted to sell my house and he was ready to buy it. I do not know about anything else,” he said.
Reportedly, an NRI named Vyjayanth gave money to Rajesh to purchase a 10-acre property. However, when the deal fell apart, Rajesh bought Inspector Sudhakar’s house with that money and did not inform Vyjayanth about this.
CI Sudhakar also said that the house was sold around seven months ago and that the Vanasthalipuram police filed the case against him without prior notices or information.
