Bengaluru: A complaint was filed against a woman for allegedly duping a 40-year-old businessman of Rs 2.38 lakh by falsely assuring him of an engineering seat for his daughter in a private engineering college in Bengaluru.

M Krishna, a resident of Hosapalya located on Kanakapura main road, said that while looking for an engineering college for his daughter, he met the accused at an acquaintance’s house. Krishna later gives him the money in exchange for a letter confirming the seat.

After examining the letter, he realized that it was not in the proper format, and tried to confront her. She claimed that she had met with an accident, and began to avoid him. When the complainant went to the college, he came to know that the letter was fake.

A complaint was lodged with the Kagalipura police on Wednesday. “She gave us a letter signed by the donor trustee and the member secretary of the educational trust. On not being able to contact him, we went to the college to confirm the seat. An employee clarified that the letter was fake. The signature of the member secretary was also forged,” Krishna told TNIE. By the time he went to the house of the accused to collect the money, she had fled.

“The accused is said to have duped many others, and there are complaints against him in other police stations. The complainant should have been careful,” said an officer. A case has been registered under IPC sections 406 and 420.
