CHENNAI: A cheating complaint against a gang by a woman took an interesting turn when police found that she had actually given them money to get her a pistol.

Police said Manjula (38) was allegedly planning to kill her husband S Karthikeyan and another E Nagaraj, 27, who had murdered her child four months ago after his relationship with her was said to have gone sour.
It all started when a police team spotted Manjula picking a fight with two men near YMCA Nandanam on Wednesday evening. “Initially, she claimed that these two men had cheated her after collecting money from her. But, only later we found out that she had actually given `two lakh to the two men to purchase a pistol from them. But, they had given her a fake pistol due to which she was picking a fight with them,” said a police officer investigating the case.

The Saidapet police arrested the two men, S Prashanth, 25, and P Sudhakar, 31, along with Manjula.
Manjula was mother of Rithesh Sai, a nine-year-old boy, who was kidnapped and beaten to death by one Nagaraj in February at Selaiyur. Manjula had told police that she wanted to kill Nagaraj who had come out on bail, as a revenge and was trying to procure a pistol for it. Police said Manjula was also planning to kill her husband since he had been demanding divorce.
