BENGALURU: THE City Market police on Wednesday arrested a man for allegedly cheating people in the name of a charitable trust.The accused is Jagadeesh Shah, who cheated people claiming that he runs a trust called Samvedana. Mangaldeep Jain, an architect who also runs a jewellery shop in Chickpet, had recently lodged a complaint with the police against Shah.

According to Jain, he met Shah in an old-age home in Yelahanka. “I used to visit the place and make donations regularly. Shah introduced himself and told me that he was here doing services for a ‘seer’ living in Thailand. A few days later he said the ‘seer’ was building a temple in Thailand and wanted to gift 200 gold chains to the donors.”

“Shah told me that he would order all 200 chains from my shop and asked him to give a few gold chains as sample. He took nine gold chains and handed over a cheque for `1 lakh. But the cheque bounced,” he said.When Jain cross-checked with his friends, he found out that Shah had cheated a lot of people in similar manner. That was when Jain lodged a police complaint.
