Police booked a man for allegedly duping a Phase 11 family and not giving them a car that it won in a lucky draw. The accused is said to be on the run. The police said the man had duped other persons too by asking them to invest in his scheme. Jaswant Kaur, a resident of Bathlana near Sohana, lodged a complaint with the police alleging that Amit Kumar, also a resident of the same locality, had floated a lucky draw scheme registered on the name of Guru Kirpa Trading Company around an year ago. She further stated that her husband had won a Maruti Alto K 10 car on March 26, 2016. Jaswant alleged that Amit took the card, which was a proof of winning the car from her husband, but did not give him the car.
The complainant alleged that they had asked Amit several times to give them the car but every time he made excuses. She also alleged that when her husband went to meet Amit, he threatened him and misbehaved with him.
Officers of Sohana police station said some other more people approached them and told them that Amit duped them as well. But the police have not received any written complaint yet. “The accused used to make people invest in the firm and then dupe them by not giving them their prizes,” police said. The police booked Amit under Section 406 (criminal breach of trust) and 420 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
