As the incidents of defrauding upsurge in Gujarat, another case from Banaskantha has come to light. A Punjab-origin businessman based in Tharad, Banaskantha, lost ₹80 Lakhs in the temptation to buy gold at lower prices. Later, the businessman complained to the Tharad Police Station against six people, including Rasul, Usman, and Jitu. The Ahmedabad Crime Branch has also stepped forward to recover the amount.
A gang of six approached the Punjabi trader to sell him gold at a lesser rate. They called him at Tharad with the money. However, as soon as he reached the location, they threatened him with a revolver and ran away with ₹80 Lakhs.
Currently, the Local Crime Branch are busy finding the other accused. According to the initial investigation, Vishal Mahendrasingh Soni (Joura), a resident of Bathinda, came to Gujarat with his brother-in-law. They met an e-mail agent, who lured them into buying gold at a 10% less rate and showed them two gold biscuits for the same.
Moreover, the gang gave the traders two gold biscuits worth ₹9,40,000 to seal the deal and asked them to bring ₹80 Lakhs for two kilograms of gold. Thus, Vishal borrowed ₹30 Lakhs and quarrelled with his brother-in-law. As of now, the gang that looted Vishal of ₹80 Lakhs is on the run and the cops are extensively looking for them.
