Sacked executive gets even with company, dupes chemist of Rs 8L

A man has been arrested for duping a chemist shop of Rs 8 lakh at south Delhi’s Sheikh Sarai, police said on Saturday.

Rajiv Kumar Verma, 28, used to work with cash transport service provider ISS-SDB as cash officer executive, but was expelled due to recession.

“The company withheld his salary for last two months so he visited the complainant’s office and collected Rs 8 lakh on behalf of the company,” said B S Jaiswal, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South).

Vijay B Bhalla of PSRI Drug Store had told police that they deposited Rs 8 lakh every Friday through representative of ISS-SDB. On September 27, Vijay received a call from a representative of the company saying he will come to collect money.

Later, a representative of the company came to his office with the company’s seal, stamp and other relevant documents. Vijay handed over Rs 8 lakh to him and took the receipts, which were stamped in front of him.

“Vijay was shocked to find out that he had been cheated when another representative came to collect cash after some time,” Jaiswal added. A case was registered with Malviya Nagar police station.

The accused was identified as Rajiv, a resident of Mukund Vihar in north-east Delhi’s Karawal Nagar. He was arrested and the cheated amount of Rs 7.96 lakh was recovered at his instance.

During interrogation, Rajiv told police that he had worked with ISS-SDB’s office at south-east Delhi’s Zamrudpur for over an year.
