Tollywood actor Viswant has come under the radar of Hyderabad police as a cheating case has been filed against him, his father and others for allegedly duping a businessman in connection with the sale of a car.
As per reports, the actor along with others had promised the businessman of delivering a car at a discounted rate of 30%. However, no arrests have been made so far.
Earlier this month, Banjara Hills police had received a complaint from R Rama Krishna, 47, from Srinagar Colony stating that in 2017, the businessman had approached the actor and his father after knowing that they were supplying cars at a lower price.
The complainant alleged that he had paid Rs 12.5 lakh to them but he was denied from being provided the vehicle ownership papers. On enquiry, the victim found that the actor and others had mortgaged the car’s documents with a finance firm, the police said. Based on the complaint, a case was registered and further probe is underway.
