Mandya: A cheating case has come to light after a conman duped a farmer of Rs. 30.25 lakh after promising his son a Police Sub-Inspector (PSI) post. The fraudster claimed that he is very close to Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and B. Y. Vijayendra, the son of former Chief Minister B. S. Yediurappa.

In a complaint to the police, farmer Ningaraju, a native of the Srirangapatna Taluk’s Gaamanahalli village, claimed that he had been told that his son, Arun Kumar, would get the job in the Police Department by a man named Manjunath alias Akshay from Kolar.

Ningaraju was introduced to Manjunath by a BJP leader Suresh Kumar from Channapatna promised Ningaraju that Manjunath would secure the PSI job for his son who had applied for the job. As Arun Kumar had applied for the job, he was called by the Department for a physical test at Koramangala in Bengaluru.

Following this, Ningaraju met Manjunath at a five-star hotel in Bengaluru who demanded Rs. 40 lakh to get the job of PSI for his son. Ningaraju sold his land. He owned only two acres of land and out of which he sold 1.5 acres to raise the money. As he fell short of money, Ningaraju further borrowed money for hefty interest and collected Rs. 30.25 lakh. After handing over the money, Ningaraju told Manjunath that the remaining amount will be handed over once his son Arun Kumar receive the appointment letter.

When the results were announced, to his dismay, Ningaraju did not find his son’s name on the PSI recruitment list. He later called up Manjunath to return the money as the job offer did not fructify. As Manjunath did not return the money, Ningaraju met the Mandya SP Yathish and lodged a complaint.

Speaking to mediapersons SP Yathish said that the CID is probing the PSI recruitment scam and we will have to seek an opinion from the CID whether the Mandya Police should conduct the probe or if the CID will take over. Based on the feedback, the case will either be transferred to CID or an FIR will be registered in Mandya District, he added.
