MUM­BAI: Film and tele­vi­sion ac­tor Sachin Pil­gaonkar and his wife, Supriya, were al­legedly duped of Rs35 lakh by a 28-year-old Punebased woman. The ac­cused, Anagha Borikar, who is mar­ried to a Nag­pur businessman, but lives in Pune, promised the ac­tor a BMW car at a price lower than what the dealer was offering.

In his com­plaint, Pil­gaonkar claims that he first met Borikar in Panch­gani at a sports event, where he was in­vited as the chief guest. Borikar in­tro­duced her­self as a fan and told him that she was the owner of a lo­cal cricket team, which had par­tic­i­pated in the event. “Dur­ing the meet­ing, Borikar told Pil­gaonkar that she could help him buy a new car at a far lower price, as she knew well­known car deal­ers in Mum­bai and Pune,” said a se­nior of­fi­cer from the Mum­bai crime branch.

Pil­gaonkar, who was plan­ning to buy a new car, got in touch with Borikar af­ter re­turn­ing to Mum­bai and asked for the price of a BMW 3GT. Borikar told the ac­tor that the on-road price for the car was Rs54 lakh, but she could get it for him at Rs30 lakh.
