Police have registered a case against Telangana IT and Municipal Minister KTR’s personal secretary for allegedly trying to extort money from several people. He called a corporate hospital in the city on the 15th of this month and said that he was Minister KTR PS Tirupatireddy. The chairman of the hospital asked to give the number. And then he called that number and said that soon Minister KTR will be the Chief Minister. He will be sworn in at the LB Stadium … for which he asked to be paid for advertising in the media.
The hospital management made an inquiry into him with suspicion. This revealed that he was not a KTR PS. The hospital owner immediately lodged a complaint with the Banjara Hills police. Police have registered a case and are investigating. It is suspected that a young man named Nagraj, who had tried to extort money from many by mentioning KTR’s name in the past, was behind the scam. In addition to cyber crime against Nagraj, there are already cases in Balanagar and Jubilee Hills police stations.
KTR PA said he had previously overthrown a company CMD. He phoned the CMD and introduced himself as KTR PA. Nagraj, a poor player, has been selected for the Team India Under-25 Cricket World Cup to be held in Britain. If you sponsor him Rs 3 lakh 40 thousand for a cricket kit … he will believe that your company logo and publicity will come on those kits. The phone number of True Caller is KTR PA and the CMD of the company deposited the money in the account given by him. But realizing he had been deceived, he complained to the police. Nagraj was arrested at the time in this case.
Karthikeyan and Fredrick, both from Lalapet in the past, were similarly exposed to scams like KTR PA. Staff in government and private offices were threatened and harassed. The case came to light after police arrested Karthikeyan in a case of submitting fake documents to a hospital for Rs 2 lakh. Police also arrested Frederick with details given by Karthikeyan.
