During interrogation, Ulhas revealed that in 2004, a case of cheating had been registered against him in Nagpur by his partner in a construction firm. He then fled to Pune, where he worked at a call centre and later with a finance company in Bangalore, where he met his wife and co-accused Raksha.

Police said the two started cheating banks by splurging money on credit cards taken on false identities.

For his passport, a police official said: "Ulhas had submitted the original identification documents of a man named Lokeswar Dev, whom he had cheated in Dehradun in 2009. There they had assumed the identity of Dr RK Maheswari and Dr Prachi Maheshwari and collected money from students on the false promise of providing them a diploma in physiotherapy."

After police crackdown following the Delhi scam in 2011, they went to Goa in July that year, where they allegedly stayed under the false names of Siddharth Jai Marathe and Maya Marathe.

"Ulhas had started a share trade business in the name of JVG securities with offices in Ratnagiri and Mumbai while Raksha had started a media business," said a police official.
