At the office Shankar Patidar, took Rs 69,000 from him in the name of preparing the loan papers and asked him to come back a few days later.

However, when he went again, they refused to give him the promised loan and neither did they return the money. Police said the accused had gone to various villages in Jhabua and had contacted farmers promising them loan. On the basis of this they had collected thousands of rupees from these farmers.

But when the farmers came to the company office, the accused made them sign papers and completed other formalities but did not give them the promised loan.

Police have found that the company had duped around 30 villagers from whom they had taken thousands of rupees.  The victim farmers had gathered at the company office the in Indore and created a ruckus demanding action against the accused.
