A COOKED-UP DEAL

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

Catharen Doyal, a Nige­rian na­tional, had be­friended Amarsh­ingh Surya­van­shi five months ago on the web­site. He told Surya­van­shi he dealt in the pur­chase and sale of medicines for a UK-based com­pany. Doyal told Surya­van­shi the com­pany had huge de­mand for ayurvedic seeds and Surya­van­shi would profit hugely if he could sup­ply the seeds.

In Novem­ber 2015, Doyal mes­saged Surya­van­shi to buy 250gm of the seeds worth Rs1.60 lakh from a sup­plier named Priyanka Jain. On Jan­uary 7, Jain called Surya­van­shi and told him that one Khan would de­liver the packet of seeds

Sus­pect­ing foul play, Surya­van­shi re­ported the mat­ter to Khan­desh­war po­lice.
