A 40-year-old man was arrested on Thursday for allegedly cheating six companies of ₹38 lakh. According to the Oshiwada police, the accused, Rajiv Ahuja, was booked in 2015, after which a detailed investigation in the case led to a lookout notice for him.

Ahuja was nabbed at the international airport in the city on Thursday.

“He used to establish BPO companies and outsource data feed from other companies in order to run his call centres. He made six such companies and cheated data-feeding companies to the tune of ₹38 lakh,” said an officer from Oshiwara police station.

Police also said there are warrants against the accused in Bangalore too.

“There are warrants to nab him in Bangalore too. Charges against him there are similar to the ones in Mumbai,” said the officer.

Police had recovered Ahuja’s passport details after he went absconding.

“We were tracking his passport details, when we got to know that he will be landing from Philippines on Friday. We formed a team and nabbed him at the international airport,” the officer said.

A case under sections 419,420,468 and 469 of Indian Penal Code(IPC) had been registered against him three years ago. “He has been remanded in police custody till June 18 and further interrogation will put shed light on his modus operandi,” said the officer.
