Hyderabad: A local court in Malkajgiri on Wednesday sentenced a businessman to two years rigorous imprisonment in a cheating case. The court also imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on him. In 2015, the accused Khaja Abdul Saleem (39), a resident of Safilguda in Neredmet approached the complainant V Jessi Helan (42, a resident of ECIL) and took a hand loan of Rs 16.80 lakh from her.
She mortgaged her house in order to lend him the money. While taking the loan Saleem wrote a cheque of Rs 20.5 lakh to her but the cheque bounced due to difference in signature. After realising that she was cheated, she lodged a complaint in Kushaiguda police station.
