Gwalior: In the era of Corona, there has been a mantra to make disaster an opportunity, but there are some anti-social people in the society who do not desist from duping people even in such bad times. The latest case has come to light from Gwalior district of Madhya Pradesh, where a local businessman was cheated of 1.5 crore by the operators of Arogya Retail Medical Company of Indore.
The accused had given the pretext of getting the franchisee to sell the parts used in the oxygen plant. At present, on the complaint of the businessman, the police have registered a case against three owners including the operator of the company under other sections including fraud.
Dhyanendra Singh Tomar, who lives in Shivaji Nagar in Kampu police station area, is a medical businessman by profession. In Gwalior, he does business under the name of his firm MS Associate Company. In Indore, Pushpendra Singh, Rupendra Singh and Urvashi, the operators of Oxygen Life Line Retail Private Limited (Arogya Retail Company), a firm manufacturing equipment related to oxygen plant, had made a deal with the businessman to give the franchise of the company. After giving this franchise, it was promised to give good and big profits.
The businessman liked the deal and agreed to take the franchise. Before taking the franchise, Dhyanendra Singh had given lakhs of rupees in cash to the company through Karun Vysya Bank located in Naya Bazar between the year 2018-19, after which he got the franchise of the company.
The goods were not supplied to him as soon as the amount reached, on which many times the party was asked to send the goods. But neither the company operators sent the goods nor gave back the amount taken. Eventually the aggrieved businessman realized the fraud and complained to the police station, on which the police registered a case against the three accused under section 420 of IPC as well as other sections of the company operator and started their search.
