Mangalore, Jul 4: A woman has been accused of cheating several people by taking money from them with false assurances of providing them with materials to set up self-employment ventures.
Jeppu resident Haseena, of Chintan Marketing Private Limited, met Vijaya Nair at the Rudset (Rural Development & Self Employment Training) programme at Ujire and assured her of providing materials to start a self employment venture, as an office-bearer of Chintan Marketing Enterprises. She asked Vijaya to meet her for the quotation. Vijaya Nair received a DD from bank and gave it to Haseena to provide materials. Though she gave the money a year ago, Vijaya has not received any materials till now, it was said.
Haseena is also reportedly running entities like Entrepreneurs’ Multi Purpose Co-operative Society and Janashri Food Products. She has also been cheating people under these two entities.
Nazeer, a resident of Pandeshwar said, “I deposited Rs 5 lac in Entrepreneurs’ Multi Purpose Co-operative Society for a period of two years. When I approached the Co-operative Society, they gave me a cheque, but it bounced. Puttaswamy, MD of Entrepreneurs’ Multi Purpose Co-operative Society, Purushotham Rai, president of the Co-operative Society and Haseena, the vice president of Co-operative Society are involved in this fraud,” he alleged.
Shivananda said, “Haseena took Rs 19 lakh from me and assured that she would provide me with the materials required to run the gold ornaments business. To pay the bank debt, I mortgaged all the jewellery of my mother and sister.”
On Thursday July 2, Tulunada Rakshana Vedike under the initiative of Jeppu Yogish Shetty complained to the police commissioner. The commissioner assured of forming a committee to investigate the case and taking appropriate action against the accused.
Complaint against Haseena and others has been filed by the victims at Kankanady and Pandeshwar police stations.
