Missing woman helps arrest fraudsters

A missing complaint of a 19-year-old woman, who returned home after four months, has helped Rachakonda police nab a youth who abducted her and ‘cheated several mobile shop owners and star hotels’ across the country.

Shahensha Shareef, 23, who established ‘Maira Technologies at Phoenix Towers’ in Habsiguda, recruited the woman as telecaller and in March took her to Vattepally near Jahanuma and sexually exploited her for a month.

Then he took her to Mumbai and other cities on the pretext of business trips and clicked intimate photographs and threatened to upload them online if she didn’t marry him. However, after a few months, she managed to escape, reach home and lodge a rape case against Shareef.

Acting on a tip-off, Rachakonda Special Operations Team of Malkajgiri Zone apprehended Shareef, who further confessed he along with friends Mohammed Irfan and Mohammed Minhaj cheated mobile shop owners purchasing phones by cancelling online transactions. “They used to pay the bill by using NEFT internet banking and after coming out of the shops, the trio cancelled the transaction,” said Rachakonda CP Mahesh M. Bhagwat.

The accused also cheated several star hotels with same modus operandi and managed to escape without paying bills. Police seized 21 mobile phones and Rs. 5 lakh was recovered.
