‘Quest Net’ case transferred to CB-CID

The case pertaining to Quest Net multi-level marketing company has been transferred to the CB-CID. Those wishing to lodge complaints against the firm may henceforth approach the CB-CID office in Guindy, said Commissioner of Police R. Sekar.

Since early last month, the Commissioner’s office has received over 17,000 complaints and even on Wednesday, around 300 complaints were received, he told a press conference here on Thursday. Such crimes have increased in the past few months and the police arrested several persons in connection with the cases. They are also creating awareness of such crimes.

The Commissioner cited three different cheating cases recently in which the accused have been arrested.

A juice vendor, Kaliammal, in Koyambedu, was cheated by a man, who posed as a police inspector, promised to get her son a job and cheated her of Rs.10,000.

On Thursday, police picked up the accused, D. Sekar of Arni, from the Koyambedu bus stand. On interrogation he confessed to having committed the crime and police recovered Rs.8,000 from him.

In another incident in Vyasarpadi, one M. Murali lodged a complaint that someone had injured him with a sharp weapon and stolen Rs.1.53 lakh from him. Investigations revealed that Murali had inflicted injuries on himself and his friend, D. Dandapani, had the money. Murali has been working as collection agent for four years in an electrical company and had staged the drama. Both the men were arrested, Mr. Sekar said.

In the third incident, three men waylaid a doctor and sought medical help. They brought him to a place behind Pachaiyappa’s College hostel and robbed him of Rs.9,500 in cash, jewellery and an iPod. The three men were arrested from Chetpet. One of the accused was wanted in a car theft also, he said.
