2 Nigerians held for cheating Hyderabad man of Rs 5.7L

Two Nigerian nationals and an Indian woman were arrested from Bengaluru for allegedly cheating a 23-year-old engineering graduate from Hyderabad of over Rs 5.7 lakh on the pretext of providing him with a job in a mining firm in Australia, the police said on Tuesday.

The police seized two laptops, 14 mobiles phones, six passports and other material from the trio. Police identified those behind the racket as Uchenna N, Ekene Collins (both Nigerians), Afreen Mehmood Shaik and her absconding husband.

The complainant had put his resume on a job site and the accused lured him with a job in a mining firm in Australia, Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh M Bhagwat said.

They prepared fake and fabricated appointment orders and Australian work permit visa, among others. The man deposited over Rs 5.70 lakh in different bank accounts as directed by the accused, the Commissioner said. Their hideout was identified in Bengaluru and a police team arrested them on Monday.
