The city police on Wednesday arrested three persons who were on the wanted list of the Andhra Pradesh police in connection with a financial fraud case there.
They were identified as as Somy Mathew, 28; her accomplice Vinod Babu, 32; and one Deepak Singh of Sasthri Nagar in Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh. Somy, a resident of Kollam, had been residing in Hyderabad for the past 13 years. She worked as a senior marketing executive in a refinery there. According to police, the suspects had siphoned off Rs. 40 lakh from the company and absconded when the alleged fraud came to light.
The Shamshabad Rajiv Gandhi International Police station had registered a case of cheating and theft against them. The police had also issued a look-out notice against them.
The law enforcement in Andhra Pradesh recently learnt that the suspects had drawn some money from an ATM in the city. They gave their counterparts here the cell phone numbers of the suspects. The city police ran a trace on the numbers and tentatively identified the location of the suspects as near Naruvamoodu. They zeroed in on the rented house they were staying in and took them into custody. The accused were produced before a magistrate. The Andhra Pradesh police have sought a transit warrant to take them to the place of offence.
