Navi Mumbai: Police have registered a case against three persons for allegedly cheating a 50-year-old woman from Navi Mumbai in Maharashtra of Rs 18 lakh by promising jobs to her son and son-in-law in a state-owned company, an official said on Sunday.

The victim had got to know about the accused through one of her acquaintances.

Accused Presented Forged Appointment Letters

The accused also presented fabricated appointment letters to the victims, the police said. The three accused allegedly took Rs 20 lakh from the woman, a resident of Airoli area, since September 2021.
