Tukoganj police have arrested a director of a marketing company who had defrauded crores from hundreds of gullible people. A woman had lodged a complaint against the accused and now a search is on for his accompli
According to Ashok Tiwari, TI, Tukoganj police station, Geeta wife of Navin, a resident of Bina, lodged the complaint that Uday Raghuvanshi ran a marketing company, Aapna Marketing from Goldstar Tower. She alleged that Uday had defrauded her of lakhs of rupees and based on her complaint Uday was arrested. According to Geeta, Uday and his accomplice Radhyeshyam visited Bina and held a seminar. They told her that if she associated with their marketing company, she would get enough profit. They took Rs 8,000 from Geeta and gave her clothes and made her member.
Geeta was told that she needed to recruit three members under her and those three would make three members each under them and thus creating a chain. They said that once 33 members are made in such fashion, she would get between Rs 14,000 to 49,000 along with gifts such as motorcycle etc.
Geeta worked hard and made some 250 members and in the beginning Uday gave her incentives but later refused to do so. She said that Uday also stopped giving incentives as promised to her members as well. He also did not give car and other expensive gifts, which he promised if number of members exceeded the target and finally she sought the police intervention.
Cheques dishonoured Geeta said that Uday had given many cheques, which were dishonoured many times and when she raised the issue with Uday, he would ask her to present them, but the result would be the same. Later, when she and her members talked to Uday, he flatly refused to pay the money.
Hundreds duped According to police, Uday and Radhyeshyam went to other districts besides Indore and held seminars there. They made several members in these areas.
Geeta told them several members have made hundreds of members whom Uday owes crores of rupees, which he has not paid so far.
