VISAKHAPATNAM: POLICE have intensified search for the two accused — managing director T Kiran Kumar and his partner P Bhanu Kiran —in the job fraud case of Axalt India Private Limited.

The PM Palem police are expecting to receive more complaints from the victims.

PM Palem SI Eswar Rao said on Saturday that they had tried to zero in on the accused  using mobile towers but they have switched off their mobile phones for the last couple of days. However, in the name of investigation he refused to reveal the place the mobile signal spotted them last time.

He also added that they had intensified the search the nab the culprits. It may be recalled that the PM Palem police on Friday  registered cases against Kiran Kumar and P Bhanu Kiran, who duped youngsters and other job-seekers, by collecting huge amounts promising  employment at Axalt India Private Limited located at IT SEZ Visakhapatnam. The youngsters said that the company had cheated them and fled with over 2 crore.

The company, started in Visakhapatnam in January this year, recruited over 200 persons for various jobs by taking deposit money of 50,000 to 1.5 lakh.

 Some victims also claimed that the authorities had collected 1.5 lakh from each of them, promising to send them to Malaysia, where they have another branch.

As none of them received salaries in the last couple of months, many youths lodged complaints on Friday at PM Palem police station.

Kiran Kumar is a native of Tirupati and P Bhanu Kiran hails from Kurnool district.
