BENGALURU: Conman Sachin Naik has once again landed behind bars for cheating several people on the pretext of providing lands.

Madiwala police on Monday arrested Naik, the owner of TGS real estate group and Dreams GK, who is accused of duping his customers of crores of rupees.

He was showing under construction site belonging to other builders in HSR layout, Bellanduru, Anekal and Electronics City to people, mainly NRIs. So far, eleven staff, including management officials have been arrested and the case will be handed over to CID.
