Citibank fraud accused charged with duping Mumbai bizman

Tags: News
A man alleged to be the mastermind of the Rs 400 crore Citibank scam has now a new case of fraud registered against him on the basis of accusations by a businessman.

An FIR has been registered against Shivraj and his parents for allegedly duping a Mumbai businessman and his wife of Rs 13 crore while he was out on bail.

He duped the couple on the pretext of saving them from a non-existent court case, police said.

An FIR in this regard was filed here with the Economic Offences Wing of Delhi Police by Sunil Alagh, a resident of Mumbai, on August 26 under Sections 120B, 406 and 420 of IPC.

Alagh has also named Puri's parents Raghu Raj Puri and Deeksha Puri in the case.

Alagh had known Shivraj's family for long and trusted them. He had a residential plot at DLF which he wanted to sell and roped in a property dealer for the same.

"On June 30, Alagh got a call from Raghu Raj who told him that the property dealer he had contacted for the purpose of selling the said plot was a crook who had fraudulently sold the plot to five different persons and has further done some manipulation regarding the stamp duty," said a police official citing the FIR.
