Hyderabad: A man from Mumbai was arrested in Marredpally for duping a Hyderabad-based surgeon of Rs 1.4 crores. Central Crime Station (CCS) in West Marredpally of Secunderabad arrested Chamarthy G Pattabhiraman on Thursday.

According to the reports, the accused met the victim at a private hospital in Hyderabad through common friend.

"The accused told the victim to provide Rs 1.4 crore and give strategy inputs for his Kolkata-based company, which dealt in fertilisers and agricultural products. He offered 24% profit share to the victim," Inspector Manoj Kumar said to a daily.

According to reports, the accused also showcased the documents to make the victim believe and has also said that he had taken permission from the West Bengal government. The victim trusted him and had transferred the money in 2017.

However, he reached CCS police two months ago after the accused was not responding to his calls.

The police nabbed the victim from West Marredpally and had been sent for questioning.
