A woman reportedly cheated investors to the tune of Rs.20 lakh at Mindi. Savitri, a housewife, was running a private chit business for the past eight years. She stopped the business about a year and allegedly failed to repay the matured chits.

A couple of days ago, she and her husband locked their house and fled, according to Gajuwaka Inspector Appalaraju.

On a complaint lodged by around 25 victims, a case was registered on Saturday and Gajuwaka Police are investigating it.
