The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Chandigarh Police on Tuesday arrested a man, who was accused in a cheating case of Rs 30 lakh in July 2011. The immigration officer at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport, New Delhi, recognised accused Akash Gupta, and intimated the UT Police.
The investigating officer of the case, Amrao Singh of EOW, said, "Sixteen students whom the couple, Chandigarh-based Akash and Sapna Gupta, allegedly cheated had filed a complaint in July 2011. Soon after, we released a look-out notice to all the airports. Yesterday, we got a call from one of the immigration officers at the IGI Airport who identified Akash. One of our police officials, Nafe Singh, was then sent to Delhi to arrest Akash".
The investigating officer also added that the accused was about to leave for Sri Lanka on a visitors' visa when he was arrested.
Akash was produced before a local court, and was remanded in police custody for three days. "We are trying to recover documents of the complainants that are with the accused. Co-accused Sapna Gupta is yet to be arrested. We will try to get information about Sapna's whereabouts from him," said Amrao Singh, the investigating officer.
