The Ramamurthynagar police arrested Haroon alias Fernandes, brother of Hussein Mueen Farooq who helped the Lokayukta police trap KGF MLA Y Sampangi, in connection with a cheating case.

 Haroon’s associate Sheikh Usman alias Sunil, 25, a resident of K G Halli was also arrested.  Haroon, 30, is a resident of Dollars Colony. Police said the accused had cheated Suresh Chandra, a plywood vendor.

 “They claimed they were donating furniture to an orphanage and took him to Sneha Orphanage Trust in Horamavu. They ordered for plywood sheets worth `7.77 lakh and he took the plywood sheets to the orphanage. The accused had given a cheque, which bounced.

 When the vendor checked at the orphanage, the staff said they had no clue. Later, he filed a case with the police and the two were arrested,” the police said. “During interrogation, they dropped names of influential persons and tried to pressurise us.

 They moved the High Court alleging they were subjected to third degree measures. However, we did not budge and took action against them,” sources added. “Suresh Chandra was in a difficult situation as he had lost the material and had gone to the extent of committing suicide.  The accused had sold the plywood sheets to some dealers in Yelahanka and they were recovered,” police said.
