THE Vimantal Police have booked four persons, including three employees of a city private firm, for duping a Chennai resident of Rs 40 lakhs on the pretext of admitting her son in a Bengaluru-based medical college.
Among those booked are Pavan Pandey, Director of Dreams Way Knowledge and Services, Shaileshkumar Singh and Abhinav Verma who worked at the firm’s office at Lunkad Sky Station in Vimanagar. Harshavardhan, a Bengaluru resident who posed as an administrative officer with Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), has also been booked under Sections 406, 420 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code.
Rama Lakshmi (40) a resident of Tiruvallur, Chennai, has registered the complaint with the Vimantal police station. The firm had contacted the complainant over phone and then pursuaded them in a meeting that the boy would get admission at the KIMS if they agreed to pay Rs 40 lakh.

“The complainant paid Rs 30 lakh in cash and Rs 10 lakh through online transfer. Accused Harshavardhan had posed as the Administrative Officer of KIMS assuring the complainant of the admission. This entire episode happened over a period of four months. Needless to say that the admission never happened,” said V T Sonde, Police Inspector (Crime) of Vimantal Police Station. The office of the firm has been closed for days and all the accused are currently at large, the police said. “We will manage to catch them,” said Sonde.
