Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, Jan 15: Swaroop Shetty, who is accused of keeping an employee of a private hotel in the city under three months house arrest, is turning out to be a bigger fraudster than expected by the police.

In the case of Arshad, Swaroop, who got acquainted with him in the hotel where Arshad used to work, promised to give money to Arshad as he was in some financial crisis. Accused Swaroop also said that he need five lac rupees in order to provide the financial assistance which Arshad asked with him. After Arshad gave Swaroop five lac rupees, he did not give him the financial assistance as promised. Moreover, Swaroop did not return the five lac rupees of Arshad also. On asking, he kept Arshad inside a house in the city illegally for three months.

Accused Swaroop had severely tortured Arshad in captivity. He had also made the video of torture on his mobile. Later, Arshad managed to escape from the apartment where he was kept captive by Swaroop and filed case with police. Seven cases were also registered against Swaroop in Mangaluru also. Kadugodi police have already arrested him.

Now one more case is filed against accused Swaroop in Kadugodi police station itself. According to the complainant Swaroop had introduced himself as the CEO of a MNC to Kiran, manager of a hotel in the city. Later Swaroop got acquainted with Kiran and promised to get Kiran's younger brother a job in a prestigious company and asked Kiran to deposit an amount of Rs 2.30 lac in his account. Later, Swaroop gave various reasons and blackmailed Kiran and took Rs 28 lac in phases.

Victim Kiran, who gave money to accused Swaroop with the intention of getting a good job to his younger brother, came to know the reality quite late. Later, he filed a complaint with Kadugodi police. However, accused Swaroop is already with Pune police under some other case. Now Kadugodi police have to take the fraudster into custody and inquire further in this case.

    Seems to be something fishy.28 Lakhs,such a big amount,from where he got and on what ground he has given without any documents.Instead of paying Shetty,he himself could have invested in some business and earned a handsome income.
    So fools people are.
