Accordingly, the complaint and his friend Pullarao went to Hissar on 03.06.2018 and met A1, who is the C.M.D., and A2, who is the M.D, of the said company and one Bansilal Sinha. All of them explained about the benefits of the scheme and induced the complainant to deposit amounts to get high returns. Accordingly, the complainant paid an amount of Rs.5.25 lakhs from time-to-time in the months of July and August 2018 through the bank accounts i.e., A/c.No.408100301000170 of Vijaya Bank, Chirala Branch and A/c.No.20252652074 of State Bank of India, Ipurupalem Branch, Chirala.
