Gurgaon, June 21 (IANS) A Gurgaon couple and their accomplice from Jaipur have been booked for duping a businessman of Rs 40 lakh on the pretext of selling property, police said on Tuesday.
Ranju Gupta and her husband Praveen Gupta, residents of Gurgaon’s Sector 15-1, and Audichya from Jaipur’s Govind Nagar have been booked under Sections 420 (cheating), 406 (breach of trust) and 120B (hatching criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code at the Civil Lines police station.
The trio took Rs 40 lakh last week from Dheeraj Gupta, a businessman, as a token money for selling a business outlet in Gurgaon’s Sector 15-2 but later refused to furnish the sale deed.
