The Pant Nagar police on Saturday arrested a 35-year-old woman and are on the lookout for her boyfriend for allegedly cheating a senior citizen.
The accused Samreen Khan repaid the loan she had taken from a senior citizen in the form of a cheque, that was rejected as the signature and name of the account holder did not match.
The incident took place on Friday when the 73-year-old complainant Hansraj Pandach went to a leading private bank to deposit a cheque of Rs 50,000.
The cashier while depositing the cheque realised that the name of the account holder in their records was Majid Suleiman whereas the signature on the cheque was in the name of Pradeep Jain.
The bank manager contacted the Pant Nagar police that questioned the senior citizen about the cheque.
Assistant police inspector KM Kasar said: “On questioning we learnt that he had received the cheque from Samreen. She gave the cheque knowing the there was no money in the account.” She confessed that the cheque was handed over to her boyfriend Suleiman who is in Uttar Pradesh.
“We are currently on the lookout for Suleiman and have registered a case of cheating against the couple,” added Kasar.
