The Ernakulam District and Principal Sessions Court on Tuesday dismissed anticipatory bail petitions of two accused in a case for cheating an Iranian couple.

The court had dismissed the petitions of Esperance Lamba, 49, MD of Controy Career Guidance Ltd, and Vijay V, CEO of the same institute, who allegedly took `15 lakh from Monu Momeni Zhamatkesh and Peyman Pauzeshi Moin of Tehran for joining a maritime diploma course in Kochi, on the completion of which they were promised to be given a placement in Canada.

The court observed that both the accused had committed a crime of serious nature and, if granted bail, there are possibilities of tampering with the evidence and influencing witnesses. Last week, the police had registered a case after the couple lodged a complaint with the City Police Commissioner against the officebearers of Control Guidance and Eurotech Maritime Academy.

Meanwhile, the police filed a report at the court that the institute was suspected to have committed similar fraud activities and an investigation is on in to it.
