Woman booked un­der PD Act

Deccan Chronicle - - CITY - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT

For the first time, an of­fender who is in­volved in a fi­nan­cial crime, has been de­tained un­der the PD Act by the Rachakonda po­lice. Com­mis­sioner Ma­hesh Bha­gawat is­sued the or­der to de­tain busi­ness­woman Aruna Reddy, who duped many peo­ple to the tune of crores of ru­pees.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, Jon­na­gari Aruna Reddy from Sid­dipet dis­trict was mar­ried to Mad­husu­dan Reddy, who was work­ing in the Medak or­di­nance fac­tory. After his death in an ac­ci­dent, she got a job on the com­pas­sion­ate ground.

Mean­while, her father se­cured a `40 lakh loan from UCO Bank by pledg­ing land doc­u­ments. Aruna and her younger sis­ter signed as guar­an­tors. After her father’s death, the sis­ters were booked by the CBI for cheat­ing the bank with forged doc­u­ments. Sub­se­quently, she was sus­pended from her job. After re­lease from the prison on a bail, she got death ben­e­fits of her father and en­tered the real es­tate busi­ness .

She cheated in­no­cent peo­ple un­der the pre­text of sell­ing lands to them and earned crores of ru­pees. She also took the help of his­to­rysheeters to threaten the vic­tims who de­manded their money back. She pro­jected her­self as a woman from a rich fam­ily by wear­ing costly or­na­ments and trav­el­ling by costly ve­hi­cles. She also boasted of her con­tacts with higher-ups.

“She also in­duced peo­ple to buy gold. She ac­cepts the money and es­capes from the lo­cal­ity. If the vic­tims trace her, she is­sues them cheques which also bounced,” said the com­mis­sioner.

She had duped 19 per­sons to the tune of over `3.2 crore. Ten cases are reg­is­tered against her since her re­lease from the jail. She was sent to the Chan­chal­guda cen­tral prison for women.
