Indian fast bowler Umesh Yadav was allegedly duped of Rs 44 lakh by his friend and former manager in the name of purchasing a plot in his name in Maharashtra’s Nagpur. The police gave this information on Saturday.
A police officer said that on the complaint of Nagpur resident Umesh Yadav, a case of cheating has been registered against Shailesh Thackeray. Thackeray (37) is a resident of Koradi and is a friend of Umesh Yadav. No arrest has been made yet.
Citing the FIR, the official said that after Umesh Yadav was selected in the Indian team, he appointed his friend Thackeray as his manager on July 15, 2014 as he was unemployed at that time.
The officer said, “Thackeray gradually became a confidant of Umesh Yadav. And he started looking after all the financial affairs of Umesh Yadav. He looked into the cricketer’s bank accounts, income tax and other financial matters. ,
He said that this player wanted to buy land in Nagpur and told Thackeray about it.
He said, “Thackeray saw a plot in a barren area and told Umesh Yadav that he would get it for him for Rs 44 lakh and he also deposited the amount in Thackeray’s account.” But Thackeray bought this plot in his name. ,
When Umesh Yadav came to know about the fraud, he asked Thackeray to transfer the plot in his name but he refused to do so. The official said that Thackeray also refused to return this amount to Umesh Yadav.
The officer said, “Umesh Yadav has lodged an FIR in Koradi in which a case has been registered under sections 406 and 420 of the Indian Penal Code. ,
