BENGALURU:  Kalasipalyam police have arrested two men on charges of cheating a Surat-based businessman.

The duo allegedly took Rs  8 lakh from Govind Khaitan after promising to get a medical seat in a reputed city college for his daughter.

The accused Rameshwar Mishra (23) of Patna and Abhijit (22) of Jharkhand were arrested on Wednesday. One of their associates, Ranjith (27) of Bihar, is still at large.

Mishra, an ME graduate, and Abhijit, an engineering dropout from a private college in KS Layout, have been staying in the city for the last eight years.

Police said Khaitan had filed a complaint stating that Mishra and his friends had taken `8 lakh from him in December after promising an MBBS seat for his daughter for the academic year 2015.

After that, Khaitan repeatedly tried to reach them over phone, but they did not respond. So, he filed a case in July.

The accused were tracked through mobile tower locations and arrested in JP Nagar 7th Phase.
