Hyderabad: An inter-state fraudster from Punjab, who allegedly cheated a woman job aspirant from the city of over Rs 19 lakh after drugging her and her mother, has been arrested, police said today.

The accused Talvinder Singh alias Joseph from Ludhiana lured the complainant on the pretext of offering her a job in a perfume franchise with attractive salary package, police said.

The woman contacted the accused and as per his instructions, she and her mother went to Delhi last month by flight to attend the interview, Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh M Bhagwat said.

The accused received them and while having meals he drugged them by mixing sleeping pills, he said.

He then took them to Jhansi by train and kept them at a hotel and took their gold ornaments, he said.

He also took them to two bank branches and got Rs 19 lakh withdrawn from her accounts and also purchased gold by using her cards and fled, the commissioner said.

During the course of investigation, police found that Singh had already been arrested by Bikaner police in a similar case of cheating three persons from Gujarat.

Singh was brought on prisoner on transit warrant from Bikaner and produced before a local court last week which remanded him to nine days police custody.

A police team took the accused to Ludhiana and recovered stolen gold ornaments intact from his home and Rs 16.84 lakh from his bank accounts,the police official said.

Bhagwat said Singh has been committing these kind of offences since 2012. (PTI)
