A 55-year-old man on Saturday was booked for sending vulgar messages to a woman on her mobile phone.
Accused Kulbhushan Singla, 55, a resident of Sector 19, Panchkula, has been booked under 66-A of the IT Act at Sector-34 police station.
Giving information, police said a 40-year-old woman, a resident of Sector 45, who runs a business of printing press, said she came in contact with Manmohan Singh, who claimed he was into the business of selling chemicals to companies.
It is alleged that Singh allured her to invest in his business for making profit, after which, she invested around Rs 9 lakh in the business. Singh had given her a fake address of SAS Nagar, she alleged. And when she inquired about the address, she came to know that Singh was residing in Sector 19, Panchkula.
The woman also went to his house in Panchkula to get her money back, but the house was found locked, said police.
The victim alleged that during one of her visits to the house of the accused, she came in the contact with accused, Kulbhusan Singla, 55, Singh’s immediate neighbour.
Singla, who is single, assured that he would help the victim, as he was a charted accountant and knew many officials of the income tax department where, he claimed, Singh’s accounts were running.
