The accused Uttama Agarwal, 30, was sent to jail after a competent court ordered 14 days judicial custody, said police.

Nine cases of fraud and forgery were registered against Agarwal and other office-bearers of the real estate firm. The woman was arrested after primary evidences were found against her in the alleged cases, said Santosh Singh, CO, Gomti Nagar.
