The police, investigating a complaint by an Iranian couple that a maritime institute at Kadavanthara had swindled them out of `15 lakh, have filed a report before the Ernakulam District and Principal Sessions Court that the institute is suspected to have cheated several other people.

The police filed the report after Esperance Lamba, 49, managing director of Controy Career Guidance Limited, and Vijay V, its CEO, filed an anticipatory bail petition at the court.
