Two men were arrested for allegedly cheating people on the pretext of promising loans, police said on Thursday.
Identified as Subhash Chander, 32, a resident of Mehrauli and Vakeel Ansari, 28, a resident of Malviya Nagar, the duo were arrested on May 30 and several fake documents such as identity cards of HDFC and ICICI bank, driving licences, PAN cards, ATM cards, SIM cards and four mobiles were recovered from their possession, the police said.
“The duo had duped one Dr Amrita Kumari, who works at a government hospital, of R66,000 at the pretext of providing a loan,” said PS Kushwah, additional DCP (south).
According to the police, her loan request had been cancelled by HDFC bank at Green Park but on April 12 she received a call from one Rattan, who had introduced himself as a senior manager at HDFC Bank in Rajouri Garden, enquiring about her loan requirement.
“When she told him that her loan had been rejected, he assured her that he would get the loan sanctioned,” Kushwah said. “After that, she again received a call from Rattan who told her that her that her file was in process of being cleared but her account balance should be above R60,000,” he added.
Rattan then went to her house to get her signatures on the loan form and collecting cheques duly signed by her. “He then forged two cheques and deposited them in his own account and withdrew R66,000 on May 18,” Kushwah said.
