The Kothrud police arrested an IT professional for allegedly cheating two women of Rs 1.14 crore and promising to marry one of them. Police said Kiran Sharad Deshpande, 32, was arrested for cheating on Friday. He was remanded in two-day police custody by judicial magistrate first class on Saturday.
The accused allegedly extracted Rs 1 crore from a 27-year-old girl, a former bank employee and his neighbour. Police said that Deshpande, who runs a software development firm from his house at Guruganesh Nagar in Kothrud, had a bank account in the bank in which the victim was working and after their initial intimacy he promised to marry her but did not.
Assistant police inspector D S Wanjale said, "The victim's father is an officer with merchant navy and Deshpande promised the victim and her family that he would marry her. The accused extracted money from the victim, saying he planned to open a bigger company in Singapore. After he got the money from her, he spurned her requests for marriage."
Wanjale said the woman subsequently came to know that the youth had duped another girl of Rs 14 lakh following which she had filed a police complaint. Police investigations revealed that Deshpande did a course in software development and worked with an IT company before starting his own firm.
