Four people have been arrested by the Bangur Nagar police for allegedly conning TV actress Sakshi Tanwar’s father Rajendra Tanwar of Rs. 9 lakh last month, reports Mumbai Mirror. As per the complaint filed with the police, Rajesh Tanwar received a call on January 18. The callers claimed to be representatives of the private insurance company whose life insurance policy the actor has, and offered a concession of Rs 1 lakh in the premium amount for a policy in the name of the actor.
''The premium of this policy was due on February 1, but thecaller said there was a special scheme under which the policyholder could avail a concession. He was told that if the premium was paid over the next two days, the amount to be paid would be Rs 9 lakh instead of Rs 10 lakh,'' said an official from Bangur Nagar police.
The police official further added that Tanwar then transferred Rs 9 lakh to the account number provided by the caller. In the complaint, Tanwar said that the family got suspicious when there was no confirmation about the receipt of the premium. After the complaint was made, the police got access to the account details from DBS Bank in Singapore.
''We found that the money was transferred to three different accounts in India. All these accounts were in the branches of the respective banks located in Delhi and NCR. We got their addresses and transaction details from the bank,'' said the officer.
Mirror tried to contact Sakshi Tanwar for comment through her representative but she could not be reached. The accused have been identified as Ajit Singh, 28, from Ghaziabad, Krishna Kumar Singh from Delhi, Pawankumar Singh, 29, from Noida and Abdullah Hussain, 23.
