Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The wife of a retired police officer was cheated on the pretext of supplying the ‘Vada Pav’ food chain franchise, Piplani police said on Monday. Rs 8 lakh was taken from the franchise name.

Police station manager Ajay Nair told the media that complainant Bharti Gupta (58) had a shop in Indrapuri in Sector A. In 2019, Vinay Pandeya, a resident of Ahmedabad, approached her and offered him the franchise.

The accused asked him to pay the amount of Rs 8 lakh so that he could prepare the store and promised to pay the rent of Rs 40k per month and also promised to pay 15% commission from the profits to the owner of the store.

The victim transferred the amount to Vinay’s account. The accused opened the store and operated it for about two months, then closed the store and fled with the money.

On Sunday evening, Bharti Gupta approached the police and the cops registered a case under sections 406 and 420 of the IPC against the accused. The police formed a team to arrest the accused.
