A con man, posing as a doctor, drove away with a luxury car after taking it for a test drive from a second hand car dealer in Hyderabad, police said on Saturday.

The 35-year-old man, who introduced himself as Gowtham Reddy, working at Apollo Hospitals arrived at Nani Cars in Srinagar Colony on Friday and expressed interest to buy an Audi car, Banjara Hills Police Inspector K Srinivas said.

“He then took an Audi Q3 worth about Rs 25 lakh from the dealer’s office for test drive. The showroom owner gave the car and sent along with him one of the showroom staffers,” the officer said.

“They drove up to Apollo Hospitals where the accused asked the showroom staffer to get down so that he can take the car into the hospital and show it to his friends. Afterwards, he drove into the hospital and never returned,” the police official said.

A case has been registered in this regard and further investigations into the matter are going on, police added.
