The Vashi po­lice have booked two peo­ple for al­legedly cheat­ing a re­sort com­pany of Rs12 lakh over the past three to four months. The ac­cused in this case are how­ever, em­ploy­ees of the same com­pany.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the com­pany which runs a re­sort at Kha­la­pur, has their book­ing of­fice at Vashi. They had de­ployed the two to take care of the man­age­ment at Kha­la­pur.

“The two, how­ever, stole the data of their reg­u­lar clients and opened a sep­a­rate com­pany keep­ing their em­ploy­ers in dark. They started ma­nip­u­lat­ing the clients to go to some other re­sorts. They used to take com­mis­sion from those re­sorts by send­ing peo­ple like this,” said Sushil Gaik­wad, as­sis­tant po­lice in­spec­tor from Vashi po­lice sta­tion.

Af­ter al­most four months, the Vashi-based com­pany learnt that their own em­ploy­ees have been send­ing their clients to other re­sorts steal­ing data from them. They then ap­proached the po­lice and reg­is­tered an FIR.

“In last four months, the sus­pects cheated the com­pany of around Rs12 lakh. We have reg­is­tered a case un­der sec­tions 402 and 34 of the In­dian Pe­nal Code and sec­tions 43 and 66 of the IT Act. We will ar­rest the sus­pects soon,” an­other po­lice of­fi­cer said.
